|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is in the headwaters of an unnamed north tributary to the Klu River. It is at an elevation of about 4,600 feet, 8,500 feet east-southeast of benchmark Verde (elevation 6233). The site is in the NE1/4 of section 34, T. 7 S., R. 11 E. of the Copper River Meridian. This is locality 41 of MacKevett (1976). It is probably accurate to within about 1,000 feet.|
