|Deposit||Model Name = Lode: vein|
|Deposit||Other Comments = A number of small gold-bearing quartz-pyrite lodes occur in mineralized volcanic country rock (Chisana Formation of Cretaceous age) on the n side of Chathenda Creek. By 1940 a large group of claims had been staked but apparently none were successful in locating ore quality material|
