Location and accuracy The only primary reference to this gold(?) prospect is by Wright (1907). Little is known about it other than that it is near the north side of the mouth of Port Lucy, about 1.0 mile north-northwest of Armstrong Point. It is about 0.3 mile northeast of the southwest corner of section 4, T. 64 S., R. 69 E. There is almost no information on the prospect and the exact location is uncertain.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

The only primary reference to this gold(?) prospect is by Wright (1907). Little is known about it other than that it is near the north side of the mouth of Port Lucy. It is listed in table A-1 of Bittenbender and others (1999) but it was apparently not visited and they only cite the old Wright reference. The rocks in the area are a thick sequence of Sitka Graywacke of Cretaceous age (Loney and others, 1975).
