SAMPLE INFO : UT1790-P2
Sample ID:UT1790-P2
Station ID:Sixtymile_River_1
Latitude:63.533
Longitude:-139.887
Datum:NAD83
Sample Type 1:Tephra Fall
Text Description:
0.5 to 1 cm thick; brown to light yellow pumice and blocky grains with feldspar, Fe-Ti oxides and a green amphibole; within colluviated aeolian silt; on strath 18 m above Sixtymile River; 2 cm above top of bench gravel; field name JJO234. Westgate and others (2011) revise the stratigraphy of the section that this sample was collected from and note that sample UT1790 is located stratigraphically below the Gold Run tephra (UT1791) at this section.

Sixtymile_River_1 63.533-139.887Westgate, J. A.2000-01-01 The Sixtymile River (1) site is in a placer mine excavation in terrace sediments 18 m above the Sixtymile River, Yukon Territory, Canada. Originally visited in 2000 by Jackson (2009); however, Westgate and others (2011) provide a revision of the tephrostratigraphy at this section after re-visiting in 2002. Coordinates from Preece et al. (2011). Datum not specified, assumed to be NAD83.0.5 to 1 cm thick; brown to light yellow pumice and blocky grains with feldspar, Fe-Ti oxides and a green amphibole; within colluviated aeolian silt; on strath 18 m above Sixtymile River; 2 cm above top of bench gravel; field name JJO234.
