Description

Prior to the expansion of Katmai National Park, Ernest Pfaff, a longtime Naknek resident, prospected in the Kulik Lake drainage and established lode claims. The ore is gold- and chalcopyrite-bearing quartz and an unidentified silver-sulphosalt mineral. Pfaff transferred his interest in the claims to Haley Resource Properties in 1984. The BLM declared the claim null and void in 1984. Bulldozer scars, the remnants of a 30-ft wanigan, and a 1500 ft unimproved airstrip are all that remain. These resources probably date from the 1960s. The Pfaff Mine remote automated weather station is situated adjacent to the airstrip. Current weather observations can be obtained from raws.dri.edu/cgi-bin/wea_daysum.pl?akAPFA Will open in a new tab or window .
