|Location and accuracy||This prospect is about 1.2 miles northeast of Kimball Pass on the east side of the valley of the upper west fork of Bernard Creek. It is at an elevation of about 3,300 feet in the NE1/4 section 15, T. 4 S., R. 2 E., of the Copper River Meridian. This prospect is approximately located, perhaps to within one-half mile. It is locality 97 of Winkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).|
Geologic descriptionA lode claim was staked in 1956 schist of the Haley Creek terrane at this locality (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980; Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-B] ; Winkler, Silberman, and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).
|Geologic map unit||(-145.029198135938, 61.5255159869965)|
|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.|
|Workings or exploration||A claim was staked in 1956 (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1980; Winkler and others, 1981[OFR 80-892-B]). The nature of workings or exploration at this prospect is not known.|
|Indication of production||None|
