|Current site name||Unnamed (near the mouth of Crillon Inlet to Lituya Bay)|
|Geographic coordinates:||-137.48601, 58.65665 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The occurrence is approximately 0.2 mile south of triangulation station Berg at the mouth of Crillon Inlet to Lituya Bay at an inferred elevation of about 800 feet. A float sample was collected near 58.658 and 137.484 at the base of the cliff, and this is the location shown as number 1 of Kimball and others (1978), number 84 of MacKevett and others (1971) and location 1 of Cobb (1972). Kennedy and Walton (1946) report a stained gabbroic rock on the southwest shore of the southeast arm of Lituya Bay, presumably the same--and original location--of the occurrence.|

|Deposit||Model Name = Lode: Disseminated copper and nickel(?) sulfide minerals in an altered mafic dike.|
|Deposit||Other Comments = Kimball and others (1978) did not recover the mineralized dike reported earlier by Kennedy and Walton (1946), but they did note iron-stained on the cliff above the mineralized scree at the base of the cliff. The Bureau of Mines party did not have time to examine the stained occurrence. The site is in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.|
