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 setting

Geologic description

Johnson 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.
