|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 34; NE1/4 sec. 1, T. 2 N., R. 1 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This deposit is near the head of Twin Creek on the hillside east of the creek. Accuracy is within 1,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionA 20-foot adit had been driven on a flat-lying massive sulfide lens which is parallel to the enclosing schists (Chapin, 1914). A five-inch-thick lens of this material was milled and reportedly contained significant silver values. Sulfide minerals include galena and pyrite which are oxidized to iron-oxide and lead-oxide. The adit was caved and inaccessible by 1931 (Hill, 1933).
