Location and accuracy Berg and Cobb (1967, locality 2) show this prospect on the south side of the Hayes Glacier approximately 8 miles southwest of the confluence of the Hayes and Trimble Rivers in Section 1, T.19 N. R. 17 W. (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1998, MAS # 0020840042; MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, locality 23; Cobb, 1972, OFR 80-86, p. 28; Cobb, 1972, MF 385, locality 6; and U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1973, locality 42). Location is approximate within a one mile radius.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

A three to four mile long zone of molybdenite-bearing quartz lenses and stringers cutting Tertiary granite (Reed and Lanphere, 1972 and MacKevett and Holloway, 1977, p. 77). Galena, pyrite and arsenopyrite are reported by Berg and Cobb (1967, p. 36-37). Published descriptions of this locality are very similar to the Miss Molly prospect (ARDF TY013). It is possible that the location was inaccurately reported and this is actually the Miss Molly prospect.
