|Location and accuracy||Trinity Creek is a small south tributary to Washington Creek; Washington Creek (BN041) is the western headwater tributary of Kougarok River (BN035). The mouth of Trinity Creek is about one mile upstream from the mouth of Washington Creek. This is locality 22 of Cobb (1972; MF 417; 1975; OFR 75-429).|
Geologic descriptionBrooks (1907) reported that gold was discovered on this creek but there is no history of mining operations (Cobb, 1975, OFR 75-429). Sainsbury and others (1969) did not show placer workings on this drainage although both upstream and downstream parts of nearby Washington Creek (BN041) were extensively mined.
