The heart of the operation would be the mine pit, seen in gray at right, that would be 6,500 feet long, 5,500 feet wide and up to 1,750 feet deep.

At the upper left is the North Fork of the Koktuli River and at upper left is the Upper Talarik Creek, which feeds Iliamna Lake and the Kvichak River. (Map via Pebble Ltd.
