|Location and accuracy||This occurrence is on the rideline between upper Hunter Creek and and tributary to Johnston Creek in the central Teller B-1 quadrangle. It is at an elevation of 900 feet adjacent to a saddle between the two drainages. This is locality 20 of Cobb and Sainsbury (1972). Cobb (1975) summarized the one reference to this occurrence under the name 'Unnamed occurrence'.|
Geologic descriptionThis occurrence is in an area of intercalated metapelitic and metacarbonate rocks that may contain some quartzites. A sample of 'altered limestone with quartz veinlets' is reported to have anomalous gold (Sainsbury and others, 1969, p. 18, 36).
