|Location and accuracy||This prospect is located on Foster Creek, a west tributary to Camp Creek (SO057); it is about 8 miles west of Council. The location is approximate, probably within 1.5 miles of the coordinates. It is locality 12 of Cobb (1972, MF 445; 1978, OF 78-181).|
Geologic descriptionAn 8-foot-deep shaft and a 60-foot-long adit explore discontinuous stibnite lenses and stringers up to 1-foot wide in contorted mica schist (Anderson, 1947). Some stibnite is described as forming tiny stringers and pockets in the folds of the schist. Bedrock in the area is part of a lower Paleozoic metasedimentary assemblage (Till and others, 1986).
