|Location and accuracy||This prospect is near the shoreline about 0.4 mile northwest of triangulation station 'Kan' on the north side of the mouth of Gambier Bay; it is near the center of section 2, T. 51 S., R. 71 E. This is an old, little-known prospect but the location is probably accurate to within a mile or less.|
Geologic descriptionLittle is known about this prospect other than Herman Kloss reported that a trench across a shear zone 150 to 200 feet thick that contained some copper and nickel oxides (Herbert and Race, 1964; Race and Rose, 1967, Cobb, 1978). The deposit is probably in the Hyd Group of Triassic age (Loney, 1964).
