|Location and accuracy||This prospect is at an elevation of about 3,000 feet on a south tributary of the East Fork, Iron Creek. It is in the northwest corner of sec. 6, T. 26 N., R. 3 E., Seward Meridian. The location is accurate to within 1/4 mile radius. This is locality 77 of Csejtey and Miller (1978).|
Geologic descriptionThis prospect consists of small veins or replacement pods of chalcopyrite in altered, mafic metavolcanic rocks (greenstone) of Paleozoic(?) age (Csejtey and Miller, 1978). A sample of greenstone contains 5,000 parts per million copper (Miller and others, 1978).
