|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 40; SW1/4 sec. 19, T. 3 N., R. 2 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This prospect is on the divide between Bedrock and Chatham Creeks, at an elevation of about 1,300 feet; it is east, north-east of the Cleary Hill mine (ARDF no. LG119). Accuracy is within 1,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionBy 1912, a short adit had been driven on a north-south trending shear zone which contained arsenopyrite and stibnite (Smith, 1913; B 525). A shallow winze was sunk from the tunnel but the prospect was partially filled with water in 1912. The shear reportedly contained abundant gold; however, no production was known from the prospect.
