|Location and accuracy||This site is located on the west side of Uyak Bay approximately 1 3/4 miles west of triangulation station Bush and 2 1/2 miles southeast of Larsen Bay, approximately 500 yards northwest of the Bear vein (KD003) (Martin, 1913, locality 11; Berg and Cobb, 1967, figure 15, locality 10; Cobb, 1972, MF 460, locality 1; McGee, 1972, locality 10; MacKevett and Holloway 1977, locality 1). Site location is accurate to within 1/2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionAt this site a quartz vein striking northwest and dipping southwest cuts Cretaceous slate or schist. The vein is approximately 2 feet in thickness and contains arsenopyrite, pyrite, and gold. Acidic dikes occur in the vicinity. This vein may be on the same structure as the Bear (KD003).
