|Location and accuracy||This prospect is on the ridge between two, unnamed, north tributaries to Caribou Creek. It is at an elevation of about 4,500 feet, 1,300 feet north-northeast of peak 4702 and 5,100 feet west of elevation 5620 in the SE1/4 of section 26, T. 10 N., R 10 E., of the Copper River Meridian. This is National Park Service locality WRST-1 (unpublished data) and the coordinates for this prospect were provided by the National Park Service.|
Geologic descriptionAn unpublished National Park Service map and accompanying database identify this prospect. However, the reference for this prospect in the database (Moffit, 1943) does not describe a deposit in this area. A limonite-stained, northwest-trending steep fault cuts upper Paleozoic metavolcanic rocks near this prospect (Richter and Schmoll, 1973).
