|Location and accuracy||The Winther prospect is at an elevation of about 2,500 feet, 0.2 mile west of peak 2821 on Mt. Lydonia. The prospect is in the NE1/4 sec. 10, T. 48 S., R. 57 E. It is location P-57 of Bittenbender and others (1999) and MAS no. 0021140114 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location probably is accurate within about 0.5 mile.|
Geologic descriptionJohnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the area of this prospect as part of the Freeburn assemblage, a collage of kilometer-scale, fault-bounded, lozenge-shaped blocks of Cretaceous and Cretaceous(?), metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. The prospect area is bracketed by regional-scale, steeply-dipping, northwest-striking faults. Bittenbender and others (1999) report that 7 claims were staked in 1933, but the commodity of interest is not given. There is no record of activity since the initial staking.
