|Location and accuracy||The occurrence is in a steep canyon that trends west and southwest into upper Lost Creek about 0.2 mile north of the confluence of Dahl Creek (not shown on the 1972 edition of the USGS topographic map) with Lost Creek. Dahl Creek is the location of the Hed & [and] Strand antimony mine (NM070). It is about 2.7 miles northwest of Mount Distin and in the western part of the claim block for the Bulk Gold prospect (NM071). It is locality 29 of Hummel (1962 [MF 248]). This occurrence is probably located within about 1,000 feet of the coordinates.|
Geologic descriptionHummel (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 appears to be in massive marble (Hummel, 1962 [MF 248]; Bundtzen and others, 1994) and is probably adjacent to a strong, north-northeast-striking fault (Hummel, 1962 [MF 248]).
