Caribou_Creek_162.865555555556-137.02388888889Unknown, Unknown 124000 ± 10000 known unit; 10271; Age is approximate. Revised glass fission-track age with re-calibration; four Old Crow Tephra sample glass fission-track ages (UT1434, UT613, UT501, UT613).Gravel pit exposure on the north side of the Pelly far, road, approximately 120 m above the Pelly River, Yukon Territory, Canada. Well-exposed sediments comprise 4 stratigraphic units that extend laterally for 20 m and are 3-4 m high. Upper surface of the exposure slopes 15-20 degrees towards the road. Coordinates from Ward and others (2008), provided as degrees/minutes/seconds and converted to decimal. Coordinates vary slightly from those reported for these stations in other publications. Datum not specified, assumed to be NAD83.4 to 6 cm thick. Within well-stratified sand and silt of an alluvial fan overlying Reid deglacial gravels.
