Location and accuracy The occurrence is at the head of a steep, unnamed southwest-flowing tributary to Lost Creek, 2.9 miles northeast of Mount Distin. It is in the NW1/4NW1/4 section 14, T. 8 S., R. 33 W., Kateel River Meridian, at an elevation of about 1,350 feet. It is approximately 0.6 mile north-northwest of the Hed & [and] Strand antimony mine (NM070) and is within the claim block of the Bulk Gold prospect (NM071). This is locality 31 of Hummel (1962 [MF 248]) and it is probably located within about 1,000 feet of the coordinates.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

Hummel (1962 [MF 248]) identified this locality as an antimony occurrence. Stibnite is probably present as is at least a small amount of gold. The occurrence is within the claim block of the Bulk Gold prospect (NM071). It is in massive marble and within 0.1 mile to the east of a strong fault (Hummel, 1962 [MF 248]; Bundzten and others, 1994). Both Hummel (1962 [MF 248]) and Bundtzen and others (1994) map a gneissic granitic intrusive or metavolcanic body in this area.
