|Location and accuracy||This prospect is on the ridge crest on the north side of upper Barnette Creek. It is on a saddle at an elevation of about 6,000 feet very close to the northwest corner of section 3, T. 2 S., R. 9 W., of the Copper River Meridian. This prospect is probably located to within one-quarter mile. It is locality 83 of Winkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).|
Geologic descriptionWinkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]) reported that test pits have been dug in serpentinized ultramafic rocks at this locality. The ultramafic rocks are blocks in a melange that is structurally below the Border Ranges fault (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).
|Geologic map unit||(-146.849556321545, 61.7293932426705)|
|Mineral deposit model||Podiform chromite? (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 8a)|

|Workings or exploration||Surface test pits have been dug at this locality (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).|
