Details

160 acres with OCEAN FRONTAGE ON KUPREANOF STRAIT AND DRY SPRUCE BAY only 28 air miles from the city of Kodiak, Alaska. Appears to have a natural protected calm water location to anchor a boat. Quarts & Gold was located on the east side of this island in 1902 and a small mine operated there during that time. This is a Native Allotment property and will require BIA approval of the sale.

In 1902 small Gold and Quarts mine was located at the east end of Dry Spruce Island

This site was developed by a 30- to 40-foot shaft, a 95-foot-long adit, and a 10-foot-long cross-cut. Several tons of ore were reportedly shipped for milling.

This deposit was first located in 1902 and consists of Cretaceous metasedimentary rock cut by a network of quartz veins and bunches that generally strike northeast and dip vertically. The veins typically pinch and swell and may be up to 18 inches thick. Some pinch out over short distances. The quartz is white and vesicular and is slighty iron-stained in places but generally shows little mineralization. It is reported that some high assays were obtained and that several tons of ore were shipped to the Amok Gold Mine (KD001) and milled there. The description by Capps (1937) is the latest information available.
