|Current site name||Unnamed (between Fairweather and Sea Otter Glaciers)|
|Geographic coordinates:||-137.65114, 58.88271 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||Sulfide and heavy oxide boulders occur in the moraine about 4.5-7 miles west-southwest of the top of Mt. Fairweather on an east-heading glacier that is between Fairweather and Sea Otter Glaciers. The coordinates given above are for the approximate location of Bureau of Mines sample 7S008 (Kimball and others, 1978) collected at an elevation of about 3500 feet. The Bureau estimated the collection elevation at about 3700 feet which would be about 0.4 mile to the east of the coordinates assumed here. Sample 7S009 was collected in moraine about 0.4 mile south, slightly east, of the 7S008 location. The exact locations of the samples are not believed to be critical.|

|Deposit||Model Name = Metalliferous glacial moraine. The metalliferous boulders are derived from primary cumulate-sulfide segregations in an layered mafic-ultramafic(?) intrusion.|
|Deposit||Other Comments = the site is in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Further search for the source of the metalliferous moraine would need mountaineering support.|
