|Geographic coordinates:||-144.91282, 64.45271 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The Pogo deposit is located on the Goodpaster River drainage approximately 5 miles north of the mouth of Central Creek (BD011), and approximately 35 miles northeast of Big Delta. The prospect is part of a 72 square-mile claim block that includes Sonora Creek (BD049) and parts of Central Creek. The approximate center of the Pogo deposit is in section 26, T. 25 S., R. 14 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian, which is bordered on the north and south by Liese Creek and Pogo Creek. A winter trail from Big Delta provides access up the Goodpaster River. The base camp of operations, a 24-trailer exploration camp, is located at SE1/4SE1/4 section 27, T. 5 S., R. 14 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. A 1,500-foot airstrip is also located at the site. The Pogo prospect was not identified as a separate location by Cobb (1972) or by Cobb and Eberlein (1980).|
