|Location and accuracy||This prospect is about 0.5 mile east of Steeple Peak at an elevation of about 2,100 feet. It is in the SW1/4NW 1/4 section 4, T. 44 S., R. 70 E. of the Copper River Meridian. This is location T009 of Wells and others (1986). The location is accurate within 1/4 mile.|
Geologic descriptionThe Taku Chief prospect is in black phyllite, felsic phyllite, and chlorite phyllite that have been intruded by Cretaceous diorite and metagabbro (Redman and others, 1989). The phyllite locally contains both disseminated and stratiform pyrrhotite and pyrite. Zinc and gold values have been reported (Redman and others, 1985). A few open cuts, trenches, and an adit have been excavated (Redman and others, 1989). The Taku Chief claims were originally staked in 1954 by Henry (Tiger) Olson (Redman and others, 1985).
