|Geographic coordinates:||-150.62553, 59.52248 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||Two occurrences are located on the southeast shore of West Arm of Nuka Bay, near the mouth of Beauty Bay. Both occurrences are exposed on the sea cliff. The northern most exposure is a two-foot-wide vein which strikes N80E. The southern occurrence is about 0.3 miles south of the northern exposure and consists of a four-foot-wide zone of quartz and fractured graywacke. This is Cobb's (1972, MF-397) location 18 and Richter's (1970) locations 11 and 12. This location is accurate to within a quarter of a mile.|
