Location and accuracy The map site of the Freds prospect is at an elevation of 500 feet, about 2,000 feet northwest of the center of sec. 3, T. 58 S., R. 75 W., Seward Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1,200 feet.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

The Freds prospect is located 800 feet northeast of the Origin prospect (PM087), along or near the Aquila linear (Peterson and others, 1982). The country rock is relatively fresh andesite of the late Eocene to late Oligocene Popof volcanic rocks (Wilson and others, 1995). A grab sample collected in 1981 contained more than 10 ppm gold. A 40-foot trench dug in 1982 revealed a 3-inch quartz vein. None of the trench samples contained detectable gold (Peterson and others, 1982).

Production and reserves

Workings or exploration In 1982 UNC Teton Exploration Drilling Company dug a 40-foot trench on the prospect. Eight trench samples contained no detectable gold (Peterson and others, 1982).
