|Location and accuracy||The Coronado (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002) or Cook (Cobb, 1972, 1978) prospect is at an elevation of about 1,100 feet, 0.5 mile northeast of the north head of Gambier Bay. The prospect is 0.4 mile southeast of the center of sec. 19, T. 50 S., R. 71 E. It is location 70 of Cobb (1972, 1978) and MAS no. 0021140175 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate within 0.2 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis prospect is in marble of the Gambier Bay Formation (Lathram and others, 1965). There are several references to this prospect but all refer back to Wright (1906) as the source of their information. Wright had little information on the Cook prospect other than that a claim was located on a gold- and silver-bearing 'ledge' (vein?) and that no work had been done on it as of 1904.
|Geologic map unit||(-134.075035080845, 57.5200605878528)|
|Age of mineralization||Devonian or younger based on the age of the host rock.|
|Workings or exploration||A claim was staked before 1904.|
|Indication of production||None|
Additional commentsThe prospect is now within the Wilderness of the Admiralty Island National Monument and is closed to mineral exploration and development.
