|Location and accuracy||The occurrence located in the NW1/4 section 10, T. 2 S., R. 1 E., of the Seward Meridian. It is situated 1.2 miles northeast of the head of Thumb Cove between Prospect and Spoon Glaciers. It is in the same general vicinity as Copper Chief (SR281). This is location 98 of Cobb and Tysdal (1980) and location S-190 of Jansons and others (1984). This location is accurate to within a quarter of a mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe occurrence consists of a 10-foot-wide massive sulfide zone that is 450 to 650 feet long. It contains chalcopyrite with irregular patches of pyrite on one side of the zone and magnetite and chalcopyrite on the other side (Cobb and Tysdal, 1980). The zone is hosted in a sheeted basalt dike complex of the Valdez Group of Late Cretaceous age (Tysdal, 1978 [MF-880-A]). No assay results are reported in the literature.
