|Location and accuracy||This site represents gold placer claims indicated on U.S. Bureau of Mines maps in 1973. They are located on Salmon Creek in T. 29 S., R. 42 W., of the Seward Meridian, approximately 2 1/2 miles upstream from Becharof Lake. They are part of a group of claims extending to the southeast along Salmon Creek onto the Karluk quadrangle (site KR011in Pilcher, 1999). The site corresponds to locality 7 in MacKevett and Holloway (1977), and to locality 18 in Church and others (1989: MF-1539I). Site location is accurate to within 1/2 mile.|
