Location: This prospect (?) is at an elevation of about 950 feet, about 1.2 miles east-northweast of Elf Cove in Ford Arm. The prospect is 0.2 mile north-northeast of the center of sec. 27, T. 49 S., R. 59 E. It is MAS no. 0021140126 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location probably is accurate within about 0.5 mile.
Geology: Johnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the area of this prospect as Cretaceous greenstone and melange. The rocks are cut by steeply-dipping, mainly northwest-striking faults. These include: 1) the extensions of the faults at the Hirst (SI087) and Chichagof (SI093) mines which control the mineralization there and are about a mile to the southwest, and 2) the regional-scale Border Ranges Fault that passes through about 2 miles to the northeast. The only published information about the prospect is that it has been staked for an unspecified commodity (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
Development Status: Undetermined.
