|Location and accuracy||This placer occurrence is in the W1/2 section 3, T. 5 N., R. 5 E., of the Seward Merdian. The placer extends from sea level up a short, broad valley to the toe of Taylor Glacier. This is location P-44 of Jansons and others (1984). The location is accurate to within a half mile.|
Geologic descriptionThis placer occurrence consists of clay- and boulder-rich outwash gravel in the braided stream channels below the terminus of Taylor Glacier. The gravels occupy a short, broad valley that extends from sea level to the toe of the glacier. Gold particles as much as one-eighth-inch in diameter and some scheelite were recovered from a sample collected by the U.S. Bureau of Mines (Jansons and others, 1984). Bedrock in this area is slate and graywacke of the Valdez Group of Late Cretaceous age (Nelson and others, 1985). No other information is available.
