|Location and accuracy||This is located on the ridgeline along the northwest side of upper Coco Creek in the northeast Teller B-1 quadrangle. It is along a marble layer in schist at an elevation of 1,350 feet. This is locality 19 of Cobb and Sainsbury (1972). Cobb (1975) summarized the one reference for this occurrence under the name 'Unnamed occurrence'.|
Geologic descriptionMarble intercalated in schist is locally red-stained and replaced by sideritic carbonate with small quartz veinlets. Two samples from this locality contained anomalous gold (Sainsbury and others, 1969, p. 17-18, 36).
