Mining Claims for lease. These are the Sugar Daddy claim blocks located on the East Fork of the Chena on Ottertail Creek, Big Delta D-4 quadrangle.
Interested miners should be self sufficient and commited. Prefer 50 yd^3 production plant minimum with equipment requiring minimal down time.
email me at kringle@alaska.net




The Stigma of only fine gold in the Chena District Alaska is dismissed:

Sept. 2010 harvest 1oz.


Jewelers can weld to these nuggets,

Aug. 2010 harvest 1oz.

Re: Sugar Daddy #5 / East Fork Chena District
Thanks Michelle and Dan
Michelle note the wire in the pan below the penny? I am mining on a boudinay sausage vein zone in bed rock
The sausages are made of grey glassened (smokey) to pearl gray quartz veining which is "in foliated" or in the grain of the garnet phyllitic schist.
(grain/foliation: like the grain in wood or in your gun stock?)

There is a series of in-parallell bull quartz veins that cut across the foliation of the schist.These veins are about 8 inches wide to a foot and a half wide. These vein tend to have a zoning of fissle schist rot beside them and rust mineralization along side the quartz. I believe the wire is coming from these in-echelon veins.


Now if you look at some of the gold you will see blackend mineral within the gold?

Perpendicular to the white quartz veins are blackend veins stained with Mno2 (pyrolucite?).The blacked veins might hold larger nuggets.

Re: Sugar Daddy #5 / East Fork Chena District
In picture #2 to the left of the Penny is a 1.9 dwt nugget which looks like the pit of a large date. That nugget is never went through the dredge. I found it on the bottom laying on bedrock :smile: I had to take my glove off to retrieve it before a cave in of gravel. Man I tell you what. It did look bigger under water but man it really gave me a buzz on for a few days.

Hey, Bill
I've been hopin' you'd hit nice gold this season. Are you still mining? We have it still like summer here...trees are just turning colors. I'm heading up to do some bed rock clean off in my stream pit. Photos soon. Doug Sherrer has begun steaming the old Babe Creek shaft. Can hardly wait to find out what's down there. He'll be hitting it hard all winter. Could be into new drift in a few weeks. Wow!

Re: Sugar Daddy #5 / East Fork Chena District
Hey Paul,
I wanted to thankyou and Alan Coty again for coming up on such short notice and helping me hit it hard. It is sometimes frustrating to be a big nugget chaser on commercial ground. The larger nugget(2nd photo above) and the heart shaped nugget were beneath the permafrost which we had difficulties with when you were here.

Re: Sugar Daddy #5 / East Fork Chena District
Roger that you should see what he picked up at auction last month. I will post pictures this evening.

Treasure map below showing prospect pits A and pit b
next Summer the gravel bar across from pit A and C will be mined. Gold coarsened as I approached this gravel bar. See gold in pan photo above.




Notice in the photo the orange markers gridding off a yd x yd surface area. See map above for grid position


Paul Dennington (nuggets) on the hose beginning grid test to determine gold values averages over 140 yd surface area
depth to bedrock 1 yard and a half to 2 yds depth as bedrock inclines to the left.
Also note Alan skinned 2 feet of top muck and root mass off the top so it would not have to go through the dredge.

Hey Kurt B.
Good to here from you. I wouldn't mind stopping by Babe creek to see how your partner is doing. I need to open up an old shaft on OConner ck. and display paygravels before I will be able to sell those 9 forty acre claims. Time to consolidate. Too many mining claims and not enough time and bigger equipment.
It appears that the Our creek property is not having much luck selling theirs either

Re: Sugar Daddy #5 / East Fork Chena District
This dredge shot below is I believe diver Coty. The grid is definitely progessing at the time of this photo. But the hole is not down to bedrock due to permafrost, and it is mid June




Pictures are by paul Dennington bbcws. Paul lives in South shields ,England. It is a city with lots of civilization and population. Often living up here in the great land of Alaska I tend to take it for granted that one of our greatest resources and tourist attractions is the shear isolation and sometimes unforgivingness of a vastly beautiful land.

The above picture is facing north into the drainage of Ottertail Creek. The mountain top is not named but I have been to the top of it. So has Alan Coty.....(pause)

So much for that....in the forground is a bench we are skinning for mining , (Note the field of muck).This is about 12 feet of muck over burden to the gravels

I say bench because the bedrock morphology at the creek is beginning to slope through the water table west of the creek, (See map above). A bench deposit is define as that pay gravel which is above the curent water table (creek). Past the tundra piles is an oxbow pond (see map). That is back beneath the water table.

Claims location and Sample map








VG 1: Ah-52 sniper sluice 1/8th panned colors

dredge location Ottertail/Chena confluence
exposed bedrock in river bottom at this location. 3rd party dredge diver dredged approximately .5 dwt/yd

VG 2: test pit panned several colors

800ppb pan sample: This location is beneath a dacite dike porphyry . It was the location of the first discovery pan, excluding 3D party prospecters.

VG 3: prospect pit dug to 8 ft colors found but not to bedrock as of yet

VG 4: 1/16 th yd in sniper box several colors of flood gold

VG 5: dug out house trench with backhoe bottom gravels from a pan contain several colors

Current dredge operation: See pictures of nuggets and operation at this location

VG 6: Sniper box 1/8 th yd of material yield about .5 dwt of gold. I need to still out in road access to this location.

VG 7 a,b,& c This is draw 26. Sniper box sampled 1/8 yd and panned concentrates 7a and 7b for assay. I Really didn't need to send the pans in for assay due to visible gold in both pans.7c is a stream sediment sample as there was no water at this elevation (intermitten). See AlS Chemex Certifications below


VG 8 a and b See assays certificates a.Jl01pn and b. Jl0301pn. This was a 1/8th yd processed from a sniper box

VG 9 Draw 23 see DRW23PN assay certificate
Both were 1/8th yd processed from a sniper box.

Why donít you make it multiple choice?
OK, Picture #1 and #2 = augen (sp) gneiss. (I cheated).
#3 = limonite and manganese in quartz and spar.
#4 = limonite in quartzite.

Re: Dark Dike Rock
Verrrrry interesting.... please excuse me if it seems like Iím always jumping the gun to conclusions. Starting with a couple of hints Iíll leap to a deposit model, research that a little and try to make the geology fit my theory.
Iíve never received any instruction on geology, mineralogy, chemistry, etc., just picking it up on my own a little at a time. Iím unfamiliar with these rock types so Iíve some questions on how you make some of your determinations.
Concerning photo below...
Identify the rock types
1. Clue: fissure filling, hypabyssal,



This doesnít look like any filled fissure vein that Iíve seen, usually the quartz/ calcite type with some metallic ore minerals.
The dark matrix is enclosing the distinctly rounded grey and rust colored minerals that in some cases appear to be flattened or elongated, hence my guess of gneiss.

Re: Baby pink garnet Martian Rock type- float
Ambre,
Igneous dikes fill fissures as well. This is not a vein rock, but a dike rock

Re: Dark dike rock and white rock.
Has the dark dike rock also been metamorphosed? What is its mineral composition? What is its significance to a potential ore deposit?
Next sample, please...
http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac102/aumbre/DSC_0003-2.jpg

I was assuming that the white rock was a piece of vein rock containing quartz, spar, iron, and some common dark mineral associated with iron of which there are many possibilities that would be hard to identify from the photo.
I canít see a black vein within the rock, more like areas of higher concentration within a non- homogenous rock.
Are thinking that this rock comes from an intrusion? What is it and what is its relation to a potential ore deposit?

Thanks dredger,
Ambre the black rock is a dike rock called a basalt or basalt porphyry considering the phenocryst of olivine

Looks like skarn. Skarn may be associated with gold.

Re: Baby pink garnet Martian Rock type- float
For kripesake you are correct sir!:smile:
This skarn (endo) is only but an accumlation of about 30 lbs of rock from the dredge face.
I was amped about finding it because it had the Martian rock appearance of eclogite from a diamond pipe model.

Imagine my chagrin when I sent the rock material through the rock crusher for to sample the mineral grains and found that the rock had visible gold in it:confused:
Guess I was just not cut out to be a diamond hunter.

So now we are in the skarn model thought process.

Thanks wiz the gemmies are not eclogite or kimberlite
When I puverized the rock and panned it, there was visible gold.
Kind of a let down

(The nearest diamond find is in upper clums fk. volcano search the BLM database)
Which is about 6 miles Northwest of this claim block
