|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 31; SE1/4SE1/4 sec. 2, T. 2 N., R. 1 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This prospect is about one mile southeast of Pedro Dome, west of the Steese highway near mile post 18.|
Geologic descriptionScheelite occurs as sparsely disseminated grains in thin (less than 6 inches) pegmatite dikes intruding granodiorite. The dikes are related to a porphyritic granite nearby (Byers, 1957, p. 206).
