|Deposit||Model Name = Metamorphosed Besshi massive sulfide? (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 24b)|
|Deposit||Other Comments = This record includes references to the Reliance prospect, which Elliott and others (1978, loc. 104) locate on the shoreline of Behm Canal about a mile north of the IXL No. 1 prospect. The Reliance prospect, staked in 1953 (Maas and others, 1995, p. 266), probably is at the location shown by Elliott and others, but their description apparently is of the IXL No. 1 deposit. If so, other than its year of staking, no other information about the Reliance prospect has been made public.? the IXL No. 1 (and Reliance) prospects are in Misty Fiords National Monument Wilderness.|
