|Relative position||This site includes several prospects or occurrences in about a square-mile area in and near the city of Ketchikan. They are at elevations ranging from near sea level to about 300 feet, and from 0.1 to 0.7 mile northwest of Ketchikan Creek (sections 19, 24, and 30, T. 75 S., R. 91 E., of the Copper River Meridian). The location is accurate within about 0.5 mile. The site represents loc. 65 in Elliott and others (1978), and locs. 276-280 in Maas and others (1995). Old workings on several of the prospects are concealed by housing and other city development, or are on private lots and have been filled in or covered by the owners (Maas and others, 1995, p. 194).|
