On the Alaska-Canada boundary and the north bank of the Klehini River, 2 mi. NE of Pleasant Camp, 16 mi NW of Klukwan, and 35 mi. W of Skagway, St. Elias Mts.

Named in 1952 for Samuel Matin Fraser, Surgeon of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, when the international boundary was being surveyed in this area. This is apparently the same mountain reported by E.C. Robertson, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in 1952 as being called "Yealthanuk" by the Tlinkit Indians. The word "yealth" reportedly means "raven" and probably referrs to the "Raven Tribe" living nearby.
