|Location and accuracy||The prospect is located in the N1/2 section 4, T. 2 S., R. 9 E., of the Seward Meridian, at an elevation of 180 feet. It is on Latouche Island, about 0.3 mile northwest of Lake Hayden. This is location S-14 of Jansons and others (1984). This location is accurate to within a quarter of a mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe prospect consists of small iron-stained quartz veins in a sheared zone. The host rock is slate and sandstone of the Orca Group of early Tertiary age (Nelson and others, 1985). The veins are exposed in an adit that trends N 40 W; it is caved at 150 feet from the portal (Kurtak and Jeske, 1986).
