Catalog Number M13710
Object Name Map
Scope & Content Fairly detailed map by Fred Ellis of area cited (Kauppi description)

This map doesn't have a base foundation such as contour lines and the typical place names, roads and trails to found of this area. There is a sectional grid but no township and range information. From work on the other maps I'm certain we're in Township 2N and Ranges 17E and 18E.
The trackage starts at Camp 21 near lower Hull Creek. About 2 1/2 miles puts us at Camp 23. From there we continue up Hull Creek passing Camp Gr(?) at 4 miles. At about 4.5 miles the tracks cross Hull creek above Funk's Meadow to the east side of Hull Creek. From there it proceedes SE to Camp 24 in the SE corner of section 10 T2N R17E. Another half mile and the tracks split. The High line Heads north while the Mainline heads east then north. The High Line heads north to the top of section 11 where it turns west for a length of 3.5 miles
The mainline continues into section 14 T17E R17E It passes north of Boney Flat and at the 9 mine point encounters a wagon road. The tracks wind further north and at the ten mile mark from Camp 21 it crosses Two Mile Creek, going SE it winds thru two significant tributaries of Two Mile Creek. The map is pretty featureless but the tracks progress NE reaching the Clavey River at about 13 miles and coming close to the river itself at 14 miles in section 5 T2N R18E (Rutty description)
