|Current site name||Metal Ridge East|
|Geographic coordinates:||-165.4055, 64.83419 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||This prospect is on the ridge between Silver and Short Creeks, north tributaries to upper Stewart River, at an elevation of 1,550 feet. It is in the eastern part of a large claim block held by Altar Resources over what is called the Metal Ridge prospect. This claim block extends from Short Creek west across Silver Creek to Windy Creek and north to the headwaters of Charlie Creek (NM048). The location used here is the approximate center of the eastern part of the claim block.|
