|Current site name||Unnamed (east of Kashoto Glacier)|
|Geographic coordinates:||-137.03823, 58.87472 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The most probable location of this occurrence is near tidewater in Johns Hopkins Inlet, north and east of the foot of Kashoto Glacier; the coordinates are probably within a 0.25 mile radius of the occurrence. An element of uncertainty is present because MacKevett and others (1971) say the location is east of Hoonah Glacier, the next glacier to the south. It is apparently the same location as number 33 of Kimball and others (1978). Location number 32 of Kimball and others (1978) is about 0.75 mile to the north.|

|Deposit||Model Name = Disseminated deposit, igneous-affiliated contact metamorphism.|
|Deposit||Other Comments = Only a small part of altered zone was examined, hence there may be richer sites. The U.S. Bureau of Mines party failed to thoroughly examine the occurrence because of attacks by vicious seagulls. The occurrence is in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.|
