|Location and accuracy||The prospect is located in the SE1/4 section 10 T. 2 S., R. 1 E., of the Seward Meridian at an elevation of about 2,500 feet. This prospect occurs nearly a mile east of the head of Thumb Cove on the south side of Spoon Glacier. This is location 100 of Cobb and Tysdal (1980) and location S-190 of Jansons and others (1984). This location is accurate to within half a mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe occurrence is hosted in pillow basalts of the Valdez Group of Late Cretaceous age (Nelson and others, 1985). It consists of a zone of massive magnetite that grades up-dip into massive chalcopyrite (Tysdal, 1978 [MF-880-A]). The occurrence is reported to be traceable to for 4,500 feet along strike (Grant and Higgins, 1909). No other information available.
