|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 16; NE1/4NE1/4 sec. 5, T. 2 N., R. 1 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This prospect is near Davidson Ditch, about 1 mile east of Dome Camp. Accuracy is within 3,000 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThe prospect consists of quartz veins that pinch and swell. In part, they are massive and contain some gold, but mainly they are shattered and sugary with some visible flakes of gold. Some clay gouge and iron- and manganese-staining is present (Spencer and O'Neill, 1934; Chapman and Foster, 1969). The veins dip north and strike N 60-80 W and N 45-77 E.
