Caribou_Creek_262.87083333333-137.04166666667Unknown, 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 approximately 1 km west (along the road) from Caribou Creek 1 station. Located on the highest glaciofluvial terrace in the area, approximately 200 m above the Pelly River and ~80 m higher than Caribou Creek 1 station, it comprises three stratigraphic units. Upper surface of the section gently slopes south < 5 degrees. Datum not specified, assumed to be NAD83.2 to 3 cm thick. Within sandy-silt overlying gravel.
