|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 30; SW1/4NW1/4 sec. 1, T. 2 N., R. 1 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The Goepfert prospect is located at the mouth of Skoogy Gulch, about 8 miles northeast of Fox along the Steese Highway. Accuracy is within 1,000 feet.|
Geologic descriptionCobb (1976) reports that there are at least two prospects. At one prospect, a short adit follows a thin auriferous quartz vein in granite near a contact with schist; at another prospect, a short adit was driven on a ledge containing galena. No mining was reported.
