|Current site name||Unnamed (in upper Slope Creek)|
|Geographic coordinates:||-144.01263, 62.78968 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||A copper-gold porphyry-type is exposed in upper Slope Creek. The center of the deposit is approximately 0.2 miles north of the center of section 25, T. 12 N., R. 7 E., Copper River Meridian. The deposit is approximately one-half mile long by one-third mile wide and is probably continuous with a similar porphyry system in upper Grubstake Creek (GU019). The location is approximate. It is upstream from a gold placer in Slope Creek (GU021).|
