|Current site name||Eldorado Basin|
|Alternate or previous names||Moose Jaw Mountain|
|Geographic coordinates:||-156.009, 63.53606 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The Eldorado Basin prospect is located in the headwaters of Eldorado Creek, which flows into Colorado Creek. The coordinates are for the midpoint of a 2200-meter-long, northeast-trending mineralized zone that crosses Eldorado Creek at an elevation of approximately 2000 feet. The location is accurate within 200 feet. This zone extends northeast into the Medfra quadrangle, where the Nerod East (MD020) and Bear Paw prospects are located.. The Moose Jaw Mountain prospect described in this record is different from the Moose Jaw prospect (OP033). The Moose Jaw Mountain prospect is in the Medfra quadrangle, but is part of the northeast-trending mineralized zone that begins in the Ophir quadrangle. The Moose Jaw prospect (OP033) is on the western flank of Moose Jaw mountain, in the Ophir quadrangle.|
