The Kill Zone 2 prospect is located within Doyon, Ltd. selected or conveyed land. For more information contact Doyon, Ltd., Fairbanks, Alaska.
Location: The Kill Zone 2 prospect is located in the lower Alder Creek drainage (EA011), about 2 miles upstream from the mouth of the creek. The prospect is in the NW1/4 of section 31, T. 2 N., R. 27 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The location is accurate. The Kill Zone 2 prospect is located within Doyon, Ltd. selected or conveyed land.
Geology: The Kill Zone 2, lode prospect is located on the northwestern end of a northwest-trending set of volcanic-hosted epithermal gold prospects, informally referred to as the Deep Creek trend; it includes the Deep Creek (EA017) deposit, and the Jay Creek and Kill Zone 3 gold anomalies that are defined by soil sampling. One-half mile north, and parallel to the Deep Creek trend, the Flume trend of ophiolite-hosted gold prospects includes Flume Creek (EA009), Bonanza Creek (EA010), Alder Creek (EA013), and Flanders (EA015). The Kill Zone 2 prospect is in pale green dacite that exhibits extensive silicification and sericite alteration. This alteration is associated with black quartz stockworks and crosscutting quartz-carbonate veins (WGM Inc., 1998 [DLR 98-19]). Tertiary to Cretaceous monzonite and Tertiary conglomerate are also present. An assay of one oxidized volcanic rock contains 45 ppb gold and 1.6 ppm silver. WGM Inc. grid sampled soils on a 700 by 1,800 foot grid; they identified anomalous gold values (up to 130 ppb gold) at the north and south ends of the grid, and for 1,700 feet along a creek drainage (WGM Inc., 1998 [DLR 98-19]). Reconnaissance exploration by WGM Inc. in the mid-1970's located several gold targets in the Seventymile region (WGM Inc., 1998 [DLR 98-19]). In 1996, WGM Inc. expanded soil grids at the Flanders (EA015) and Deep Creek (EA017) prospects; conducted ridgetop sampling along a 13-mile-long segment between the Crooked Creek trend and Flume and Deep Creek trends; and had an airborne geophysical survey flown over the Flume, Deep Creek, and Crooked Creek trends.
Workings: Reconnaissance exploration by WGM Inc. in the mid-1970's located several gold targets in the Seventymile region (WGM Inc., 1998 [DLR 98-19]). In 1996, WGM Inc. expanded soil grids at the Flanders (EA015) and Deep Creek (EA017) prospects; conducted ridgetop sampling along a 13-mile-long segment between the Crooked Creek trend and Flume and Deep Creek trends; and had an airborne geophysical survey flown over the Flume, Deep Creek, and Crooked Creek trends.
Age: Tertiary of younger based on age of host rocks.
Alteration: The Kill Zone 2 prospect is in pale green dacite that exhibits extensive silicification and sericite alteration.

Commodities (Major) - Ag, Au; (Minor) - Hg, Sb
Development Status: None
Deposit Model: Possibly Comstock epithermal veins (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 25c).
