Sub-sample of 30-cm-thick tephra. Thick, continuous tephra bed within the Upper Gold Hill Loess overlying basement schist and about 3 m below a laminated organic silt containing SD tephra. Lower 14 cm consist of four subhorizontal fining-upward layers, which are covered by 16 cm of reworked tephra. This sample is similar to UT896 (fines upwards and gradually changes from tannish to pinkish, 10YR7/2. Distinct and sub-horizontal contacts between subunits.

|Halfway_House||64.735||-148.4594||Preece, S. J.||124000 ± 10000 known unit; 10271; Age is approximate. Revised glass fission-track age with re-calibration; four Old Crow Tephra sample glass fission-track ages (UT1434, UT613, UT501, UT613).||Halfway House site: a 12-m-thick section of the Gold Hill Loess located on top of a rounded bedrock hill along the north side of the Parks Highway, ~50 km west of Fairbanks, Alaska. The exposure was created during construction of the George Parks Highway in the 1960s and is mostly comprised of the Goldstream Formation. Location coordinates from Preece and others (2011); coordinates vary slightly from those reported in Jensen and others (2011). Datum not specified, assumed to be NAD83.||Sub-sample of 30-cm-thick tephra.
