|Location and accuracy||According to Eakin (1919), a quartz-sulfide vein is located on a ridge between the Kelsall River (formerly Bear Creek) and Nataga Creek. The approximate location is at an elevation of approximately 1,300 feet in the east-central part of section 1, T. 26 S., R. 54 E. of the Copper River Meridian. It is shown as location 14 by Cobb (1972 [MF-424]) and as location 87 by Berg (1984).|
Geologic descriptionEakin (1919) describes the prospect as a vein a few inches wide that contains pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, and sphalerite in quartz gangue. The main portion of the vein is chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite; sphalerite occurs along the vein margins. No additional detail is provided in subsequent references to this prospect (Cobb, 1972 [MF 424]; Cobb, 1978 [OF 78-316]; and Berg, 1984).

|Mineral deposit model||Very little information, but apparently a polymetallic quartz-sulfide vein (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 22c).|
|Mineral deposit model number||22c|
|Workings or exploration||No workings are reported and very little information is available. The cursory description by Eakin (1919) appears to have been replicated in subsequent references. The claim(s) is apparently long inactive.|
|Indication of production||None|
