|Deposit||Model Name = Low-sulfide gold-quartz vein (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 36a).|
|Deposit||Other Comments = the Monarch structures are weakly mineralized but relatively strong shear zones. Possibly ore might be found on short segments of northeast- striking veins exposed on the Monarch trend to the south. No prospecting is expected in the near future, because the veins are in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.|
