Location: This prospect is at an elevation of 2,800 feet on the crest of the northwest-trending ridge 2 miles west of Excursion Inlet. It is in the NW1/4 NE1/4 section 5, T. 40 S., R. 60 E. of the Copper River Meridian. The location is accurate.
Geology: The general area is underlain by deformed and metamorphosed Silurian or Devonian carbonate, clastic, and volcanic clastic rocks that have been intruded by Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous granitic and dioritic rocks (Brew and others, 1992). The deposit was discovered about 1909 (Brew and others,1978). It is in calcareous argillite and consists of chalcopyrite-bearing calcite veins, breccia zones, and limestone-calcite breccia veins. Samples contain up to 4,300 ppm copper (Brew and others,1978). Early workings included several surface pits and trenches along the veins. Wells and others (1986) show six prospects in this area.
Workings: This deposit was discovered about 1909 and development work consists of several surface pits and trenches.
