Lower Colville River, Locality 86/25
|Northern Alaska Map|
Bluff just north of Uluksrak Bluff. Both dark nodular and yellow-weathering ironstone present here as float. Abundant structurally preserved wood, rare cones, conifer needles and shoots together with one possible angiosperm leaf. The fossil material was collected from ironstone float possibly derived from a yellow and brownish mudstone approximately 1 m below a light gray sandstone exposed near the top of the bluffs.
