One source (Castor and Ferdock) place the Auld Lang Syne Mine in the Blue Wing Mountains, where as many other sources place the Auld Lang Syne Mountain south of 80 near Dun Glen.

Castor and Ferdock state that Chiastolite is found at the Auld Lang Syne Mine in the Blue Wing Mountains.[1][2]

Carr states that the Auld Lang Syne Mine is definitely not in the Blue Wing Mountains.[3]

GNIS lists the Auld Lang Syne Mine as being near Dun Glen Peak.[4][5][6]
