Location and accuracy This prospect is located about 1.2 miles west-southwest of the lake in Kimball Pass and six-tenths of a mile northeast of elevation (peak) 4706. The location is close to the center of section 20, T. 4 S., R. 2 E., of the Copper River Meridian. This prospect is approximately lcoated, perhaps to within one-quarter mile. It is locality 96 of Winkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).

Geologic setting

Geologic description

Lode claims were staked on gold-bearing veins in schist of the Haley Creek terrane at this locality (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980; Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B] Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).

Mineral deposit model Low-sulfide Au-quartz veins? (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 36a)
Mineral deposit model number 36a?
Age of mineralization Schist of the Haley Creek terrane was probably metamorphosed in the mid-Cretaceous (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]). Veins that cross cut this schist are probably Late Cretaceous or Tertiary in age.
