|Location and accuracy||Site is at an elevation of about 3,500 ft. approximately 7 miles west of the Middle Fork Chandalar River on a northeast- and east-flowing tributary (NE1/4 sec. 28, T. 15 S., R. 18 E., of the Umiat Meridian). Location accurate within 1-mile radius.|
Geologic descriptionOccurrence is described only as black chert, at the contact between Devonian Skajit Limestone and overlying Beaucoup Formation, that contains a pyrite- and chalcopyrite-bearing quartz vein (Menzie and others, 1985). USBM information from a location thought to correspond to this prospect suggests galena is also present (Barker, 1978). No other descriptive information is available.
