Location and accuracy The prospect is on the west side of the ridge that separates the west Lost Creek and Dorothy Creek drainages; it is about 3 miles northeast of Mount Distin. It is about 0.4 mile north-northeast of the Hed & [and] Strand antimony mine (NM070) and at an elevation of almost 1,500 feet. This is locality 32 of Hummel (1962 [MF 248]). This occurrence 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 appears to be in massive marble and near feldspathic rocks, including granitic orthogneiss (Hummel, 1962 [MF 248]; Bundtzen and others, 1994).
