|Current site name||Unnamed (south of the north fork of the East Fork Chandalar River)|
|Geographic coordinates:||-147.05327, 67.67976 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||This occurrence is at an elevation of about 3,200 ft, approximately 15 miles northeast of the east end of Ackerman Lake and 3 miles south of the north fork of the East Fork Chandalar River near the eastern boundary of the Chandalar quadrangle (secs. 15 and 22, T. 33 N., R. 3 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian). The reference point is near the center of a large northeast-southwest-trending claim block which extends 2 to 3 miles in both directions from the reference point. This occurrence is listed in DeYoung (1978) as North Fork East Fork Chandalar River (loc. 52) and in Maas (1987 , OFR 10-87 (location 29) as Chandalar River NFEF. See additional comments for further information. The location is accurate within a 1-mile radius.|

|Deposit||Other Comments = Little information is available about this site. Location 11 in Barker (1978) is on a very small scale map, but it is reasonably coincident with loc. 52 on DeYoung's (1978) map. The locations herein are considered equivalent. The claim block outline is shown on U.S. Bureau of Mines (1973) mineral location overlay. It also corresponds to location 29 on their later version of the mineral location overlay (Maas, 1987, USBM OFR 10-87). ? Alaska Kardex No. 031-070 (Kardex is a card file mining claim information system located at the State of Alaska DNR Public Information Center in Fairbanks).|
