at SE end of Baird Mts., extend NW-SE 33 mi. NW of Shungnak, Brooks Range. 11 miles long.
This name is mentioned by Lieutenant Stoney (1900, p. 56), U.S. Navy (USN), who probably named this feature on his visit there in 1884 when he obtained samples of jade for the Smithsonian Institution. Lieutenant J. C. Cantwell, U.S. Revenue-Cutter Service (USRCS), called it "Ashiganok", meaning "green-stone mountain," in 1884 (Healy, 1886, p. 57). "Ashiganok" is the same as the Eskimo name "Shungnak."
