|Location and accuracy||This prospect is located in the western cirque at the headwaters of Fivemile Creek; it is about 1.3 miles east of elevation (peak) 5561 at an elevation of 4,300 feet in the SE1/4 section 7, T. 4 S., R. 5 E., of the Copper River Meridian. This prospect is approximately located, perhaps to within one-half mile. It is locality 55 of Cobb and Matson (1972) and locality 46 of Winkler and others (1981 [OFR 80-892-B]).|
Geologic descriptionBerg and Cobb (1967) reported that this lode prospect contains gold and silver. A specimen supposedly from this prospect was rich in galena. Bedrock in the area is schist of the Liberty Creek terrane (Winkler and others, 1981 [OFR 80-892-A]).
