|Current site name||Bartels Mine|
|Alternate or previous names||Cape Mountain, Canoe, Percy Lode|
|Geographic coordinates:||-167.96243, 65.58625 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||This is an area of lode cassiterite mineralization at an elevation of about 1,000 feet, that straddles the ridge separating the headwaters of Cape Creek (TE006) and Goodwin Gulch (TE004); it is the source area for most of the cassiterite in the Cape Creek (TE006) and Goodwin Gulch (TE004) placers (Mulligan, 1966, p. 22). Several different cassiterite-bearing zones in bedrock are present within an area of about 2,000 feet long in a north-south direction and 800 feet across in an east-west direction; the area includes the Canoe prospect and Percy Lode (Mulligan, 1966, p. 22). This area was not identified separately by Cobb and Sainsbury (1972). Cobb summarized relevant references under the name 'Cape Mtn.'.|

|Subject category||Comment text|
|Deposit||Model Name = Cassiterite-bearing veins and pods in marble, at marble/granite contacts, and in granite. Some pegmatite characteristics may be present. Generally related to tin vein model (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 15b)|
|Deposit||Other Comments = Although scattered small grains of scheelite were identified in pyroxene-fluorite hornfels/skarn by Knopf (1908, p. 38), tungsten is generally present in only anomalous amounts. Tungsten was not a significant component of placer concentrates from Cape Creek or Goodwin Gulch.|
