|Current site name||Kelty|
|Geographic coordinates:||-148.27329, 67.55973 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The reference point for this property is approximately 2 miles west of the Little Squaw mine (CH040) between Squaw and Boulder creeks (sec. 32, T. 32 N., R. 3 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian). The exact location of the Kelty prospect is somewhat imprecise. It was described in Maddren (1913) as being along the same mineralized zone as the Summit (CH041) and Eneveloe (CH046) claim groups and 'situated on the southwest headwaters of Big Squaw Creek'. This would place the property within the Squaw Creek drainage west of Eneveloe and along the Summit fault. The location as shown in DeYoung (1978) is farther west into the Boulder Creek drainage. A sketch map in Mertie (1925) shows claims in this general area which extend across the divide between Big Squaw and Boulder creeks, and these may represent this property. The location is accurate within a 1-mile radius.|
