|Current site name||Unnamed (Don Miller Hills area)|
|Geographic coordinates:||-144.33243, 60.23962 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||This site represents several occurrences in an approximately 30 square mile area in the Don Miller Hills. The roughly arcuate area is bounded on the east by the Bering River, on the west by the Katalla River, on the north by Bering Lake, and on the south by Redwood and Burls Creeks. The map site is about at the center of this area, on Peak 2067 in the pass between Rope Creek and Split Creek drainages. It is in the N1/2 sec. 10, T 19 S, R 6 E, of the Copper River Meridian.|
