Unnamed Prospect (ARDF - SK069; on west side of Little Jarvis Glacier), Skagway District, Juneau District, Haines Borough, Alaska, USA

Still and others (1991) group this prospect with another one on the east side of Little Jarvis Glacier. In this compilation, the occurrence on the east side has been grouped with the RW Zone prospect (SK067) where Rubicon Minerals made the first drill discovery of ore grade massive sulfide mineralization in the area in 1999 (Rubicon Minerals, 1999).
Location: This prospect is about 3 miles, N38E from the summit of Mt. Henry Clay at an elevation of approximately 3,500 feet. It is near the southeast corner of section 29, T. 28 S., R. 53 E. of the Copper River Meridian. Still and others (1991) informally named this the 'Little Jarvis' prospect, but also included another prospect on the east side of the Little Jarvis Glacier under the same name. This record applies only to the prospect on the west side of the Little Jarvis Glacier. The prospect on the east side of the glacier has been grouped with the RW Zone prospect (SK067).
Geology: Still and others (1991) describe this prospect as small discontinuous sulfide bands in metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. Samples contained up to 0.345 ppm gold, 11.8 ppm silver, 13.6% zinc, 1,900 ppm copper, 3.8% lead, 1.44% barium, and 2,000 ppm arsenic. Rubicon Minerals (1998) interprets this prospect to occur on a northwest mineral trend along the apex of a shallowly plunging, northwest-trending antiform. This mineral trend extends from the unnamed occurrences (SK070) at the northwest end through the RW Zone prospect (SK067) and Main Zone/Palmer prospect (SK066) to the Red Creek prospect (SK063) at the southeast end. This prospect and other similar prospects in the Mt. Henry Clay area are probably correlative with the Windy Craggy deposit in Canada and the Greens Creek deposit on Admiralty Island and are therefore Late Triassic (Still and others, 1984 [OF 118-84]; Newberry and others, 1997).
