Locality Help Needed - I-99 Roadcut - Pennsylvania

Locality Help Needed - I-99 Roadcut - Pennsylvania
August 05, 2012 01:21PM
Perhaps someone out there can help fill in the blanks in this file. The current data state that the mineralization is at the "first roadcut" of I-99. Which direction is it "first" from? Secondly, the file locality string, as it exists now, infers that the roadcut is on or through the mountain. The maps reflecting the I-99 route would indicate that it is at the SE lower margin of the mountain. Is this correct? There is a crossed-picks mine symbol on the topo map - is this in the vicinity of that roadcut and is this the same mineralized area? Finally, it would appear that Lyonstown is the nearest populated place and that Bellefonte is the nearest large town/city. Is this correct? Any help to fill in the blanks would be appreciated. Thanks!

Looks like it should be ranked with the Schad prospect.

I got this straight now. The Schad prospect is quite some distance away but similer. Both are now nailed for location and species (your efforts Dave).
