|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is located on the northwest tip of the peninsula separating Zachar and Spiridon Bays, approximately 5 miles east of Uyak (Martin, 1913, locality 5; Berg and Cobb, 1967, figure 15, locality 9; Cobb, 1972, MF 460, locality 4, MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, locality 4). Site location is accurate to within 1 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence consists of a 7-inch thick quartz vein that strikes N 55 E, dips 65 southeast, and cuts Cretaceous metasedimentary rocks. The quartz carries some arsenopyrite. There is no information on possible gold content nor any additional information since Becker's 1897 original description.
