Topknot of North America Region Alaska

The Arctic slope of Alaska lies within the Polar Zone, some 600 miles east and west by 150 miles north and south, sloping from the foothills of the brooks Range to the Arctic Ocean. This area is know mostly for the great oil discoveries at Prudhoe Bay. Very little prospecting has been done due to climatic conditions.

Anaktuvik Pass

The area on the north slopes of the Endicott Mountains has numerous mineralized outcrops, with tremendous lode gold possibilities, with likelihood of placer deposits in regional watercourse and bench gravel deposits.

Opilak River

This is located South of Barter Island and along the main river and presumably in the gravels of its tributary streams there is placer gold. Hard to work due to climate, but is said to be very, very rich.
