|Current site name||Worcester|
|Geographic coordinates:||-165.1354, 65.61432 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||This locality is at 2,500 to 2,600 feet on a ridgecrest between headwater tributaries of Henry Creek, a west tributary to the Kougarok River. It is in the east-central Teller C-1 quadrangle, 1 mile south of the Henry Creek occurrence (TE074) and 5.4 miles southeast of the summit of Kougarok Mountain. This is locality 18 of Cobb and Sainsbury (1972) although they referred to it as an unnamed occurrence and called their locality 17 the Worcester prospect. The description by Sainsbury and others (1969, p. 22) suggests that this locality is actually the Worcester prospect. Cobb (1975) summarized references to this prospect under the name 'Worcester'.|
