|Location and accuracy||The prospect is located on the south side of the Avery River about 2 miles east of Port Wells. It is in the SW1/4 section 6, T. 10 N., R. 9 E., of the Seward Meridian. This is location 101 of MacKevett and Holloway (1977), location 163 of Cobb and Tysdal (1980), and location S-137 of Jansons and others (1984). This location is accurate to within a quarter of a mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe Gold Queen prospect probably is a gold-bearing quartz vein hosted in slate and graywacke of the Valdez Group of Late Cretaceous age (Cobb and Tysdal, 1980). A 90-foot adit was driven in 1914 (Johnson, 1915). No other information about this prospect has been made public.
