|Location and accuracy||6.4 km W-NW of Portage Lake, in Sec. 15, T. 5 N., R. 27 W., of the Seward Meridian. Accurate within 500 meters.|
The only information is that the U.S. Bureau of Mines (1995) reported as a lode gold and silver deposit.The bedrock in the vicinity of the occurrence is Tertiary volcanic rocks. The rocks of this unit include: rhyolitic breccia, ash-flow tuff, flows, and intrusive rocks and subordinate mafic to intermediate flows (Nelson and others, 1983, unit Tv). Potassium-argon ages for this unit (Tv) range from 56.2 to 62.7 m.y. indicating a Tertiary age for these rocks (Eakins and others, 1978).
