Unnamed Prospect (ARDF - PE115; northeast of Point Nesbitt), Petersburg District, Wrangell-Petersburg Borough, Alaska, USA
Location: This site is at about the center(?) of a block of 242 claims that were first staked in 1978 and were held until 1986. The center is about 4.3 miles northeast of Point Nesbitt at the southern tip of Zarembo Island, in the SW1/4 section 29, T. 64 S., R. 81 E.
Geology: A block of 242 claims was staked in 1978 by NERCO Exploration Company who optioned them to Resource Associates of Alaska in 1979 and then to Houston Oil and Minerals in 1981 (Still and others, 2002). The option on the claim block was dropped by NERCO in 1986. The ZF claim block is in a large body of Tertiary or Quaternary rhyolite that makes up much of the south half of Zarembo Island (Karl and others, 1999). Still and others (2002) (briefly?) examined and sampled some of the outcrops in the claim block but did not find any mineralization nor did their only sample contain any metal values.
Workings: Two-hundred and forty-two claims were staked in 1978 and remained active until at least 1986.
Age: Tertiary or Quaternary based on the age of the host rock.
