|Location and accuracy||The Bicentennial prospect is at an elevation of about 400 feet, about 1.2 miles northwest of the outlet of Kook Lake. The prospect is 0.55 mile southwest of the center of sec. 27, T. 48 S., R. 64 E. It is MAS no. 0021140194 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate within 0.2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe Bicentennial prospect is near the contact between Paleozoic hornfels, schist, and amphibolite and a Silurian intrusion that consists of biotite syenite and hornblende syenite (Loney and others, 1975). The Paleozoic rocks probably represent the thermal aureole of the intrusive The only information about this prospect is that one or more claims were staked here (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
