|Location and accuracy||The Moon prospect is located in the low pass at the head of Christmas Creek, in the center of the E1/2 sec.14, T. 9 S., R. 9 W, Kateel River Meridian. This prospect is also locality 1 of Cobb (1972 [MF 381]). The location is accurate within 1 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe rocks in the vicinity of the Moon prospect consist of graywacke, shale, grit, and conglomerate of the Cretaceous Shaktolik group (Cass, 1959). In 1911, Moon located a stibnite lode on a ridge between the Ungalik and Shaktolik Rivers. The stibnite occurs in small veinlets and lenses within large quartz veins (Anderson, 1947). Some high gold and silver assays were reported, but these are doubted by Anderson (1947). There is no record of further prospecting.
