|Location and accuracy||The Move prospect is located within a block of claims in section 34, T. 14, R. 23 E., of the Copper River Meridian and section 3, T. 15 N., R. 23 E., of the Copper River Meridian, about 1/2 mile from the Canadian border. The size of the prospect is uncertain. It is reported that many other similar prospects exist nearby. It is location 15 of Singer and others (1976), and location 10 of Eberlein and others (1977). The location of the prospect is known to within 3 to 4 miles.|
Geologic descriptionThe Move prospect consists of gold-bearing quartz veins in Mesozoic or Tertiary granitic rocks (MacKevett and Holloway, 1977). The region has been mapped as undifferentiated igneous rocks (Foster, 1970). There was some claim staking in 1976 (Singer and others, 1976), and it is probable that there has been more activity recently.
