|Location and accuracy||This placer prospect is on Chathenda Creek near the mouth of Salt Creek in the NE1/4 of section 4, T. 3 N., R. 19 E. of the Copper River Meridian. This is National Park Service locality WRST-68 (unpublished data) and the coordinates of this prospect were provided by the National Park Service.|
Geologic descriptionAn unpublished National Park Service map and accompanying database identify this as a placer gold prospect that was active as early as 1914. Bedrock in Chathenda Creek is Cretaceous volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks peripheral to and south of the mid-Cretaceous, Chisana pluton (Richter and Jones, 1973). This prospect is one of several placer prospects and mines developed within or peripheral to the pluton (Richter and Jones, 1973; Richter and others, 1975).
