|Current site name||Perseverance|
|Alternate or previous names||Valley, Bishop Creek|
|Geographic coordinates:||-157.09312, 64.38946 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The Perseverance mine is along Bishop Creek, on the northern flank of the Kaiyuh Mountains. It is located approximately 5 miles northeast of Totson Mountain, in NW1/4 sec. 31, T. 11 S., R. 8 E., and is marked by a mine symbol on the Nulato B-3 topographic map. The mine is location 1 of Cobb (1972 [MF423]). The geologically similar Valley mine is apparently located nearby (Cobb, 1976 [OFR 76-866]), but Anaconda Mining Company geologists could not locate it in 1980. For this record, the description of the Valley mine is included with that of the Perseverance mine.|
