|Location and accuracy||The first mention of these prospects is by Wright and Wright (1906) and the claims were soon abandoned (Wright, 1907). The prospects apparently have not been active since and little is known about their location than that they are near Point Conclusion, near the middle of the south boundary of section 33, T. 64 S. R. 69 E.|
Geologic descriptionThe only primary references to these prospects are by Wright and Wright (1906) and Wright (1907). In 1906, Samples were reported to give good assay values (for gold?) but the prospects were abandoned by 1907. No other information about them is available. The prospects are noted in Table A-1 of Bittenbender and others (1999) but were not visited by them. The rocks in the area are a thick sequence of Sitka Graywacke of Cretaceous age (Loney and others, 1975).

|Workings or exploration||Prospects were active in or before 1906 but were abandoned by 1907; little work apparently has been done on them.|
