|Location and accuracy||The coordinates are at the approximate location of a single claim staked in 1955 and apparently not active since (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980). The claim is near the shoreline northwest of Elephants Nose in section 6, T. 63 S., R. 83 E.|
Geologic descriptionThere is no information on this prospect other than that a claim was staked here for thorium and uranium in 1955 and apparently has not been active since. The rocks in the area are hornfelsed graywacke of the Jurassic and Cretaceous Seymour Canal Formation (Brew, 1997 [OF 97-156-D]; Karl and others, 1999).
