Alaska-Premier Prospect (near Skookum Creek), Hyder District, Prince of Wales-Outer Ketchikan Borough, Alaska, USA
This property apparently is in the vicinity of the Monarch (BC079) and upper Fish Creek (BC078) prospects, and is not contiguous to the Alaska-Premier property (BC067) described elsewhere in this report.
Location: The approximate location of this prospect is in the southwest corner of Section 36 at an elevation of about 3100 feet. It is near the southwest end of a ridge about 0.15 mile northwest of Skookum Creek (Elliott and Koch, 1981, p. 18, loc. 75). The location probably is accurate within about a half mile. Also see Additional Comments field, below.
Geology: The country rocks in the area of this prospect are pelitic metasedimentary and subordinate andesitic (greenstone) metavolcanic strata of the Jurassic or older Mesozoic Hazelton Group, which is underlain and locally intruded by the Triassic Texas Creek Granodiorite (Smith, 1977; Koch, 1996). The only published description of the geology of this prospect is by Byers and Sainsbury (1956, p. 140 and plate 1), who report only that scheelite occurs on the property.
