The prospect is 0.4 mile northwest of the center of sec. 27, T. 48 S., R. 64 E. It is location P-29 of Bittenbender and others, (1999) and MAS no. 0021140212 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

The rocks in the vicinity of this prospect are part of a unit of Paleozoic hornfels, schist, and amphibolite that probably is the thermal aureole of a nearby Silurian intrusion consists of biotite syenite and hornblende syenite (Loney and others, 1975). The only information about this prospect is that one or more claims were staked for copper in 1976 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
