|Current site name||Casey Glacier Sphalerite|
|Geographic coordinates:||-130.20476, 56.05177 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The Casey Glacier Sphalerite occurrence consists of mineralized boulders of float scattered in an area of about a quarter of a square mile (Maas, 1995, p. 233, 235). The occurrence is in the northeast corner of Section 23 between elevations of about 3500 and 4100 feet, on a north-facing mountainside south of the West Fork of Texas Creek. It is about 2.0 miles east of Texas Lake. The above coordinates are for the approximate center of the area of float boulders. The location is accurate to within about a quarter of a mile.|

|Deposit||Model Name = Polymetallic veins|
|Deposit||Other Comments = Although no outcrop of the banded sulfides was found, the location of the boulder rubblecrop suggests that their source is beneath the icefield at the summit between Ferguson and Casey Glaciers (Maas, 1995, p. 235).|
