|Location and accuracy||The Kubek prospect is located at an elevation of about 2,000 feet on the east valley wall of Partin Creek, adjacent to lower Eldridge Glacier. It is just east of the center of sec. 31, T. 22 S., R. 12 W., Fairbanks Meridian The location is accurate to within 1/2 mile. It is locality 58 of MacKevett and Holloway (1977).|
Geologic descriptionGold and silver lode claims have been staked in Mesozoic argillite and chert cut by minor quartz veins. Pyrite occurs in the chert and in fault gouge (Kurtak and others, 1992). Selected rock samples contain up to 2 parts per million silver and 105 parts per billion gold (Balen, 1990).
