|Location and accuracy||Dixie Creek is a small headwater tributary to Independence Creek. The mouth of Dixie Creek is 5.4 miles northwest of Kiwalik Mountain. This is locality 59 of Cobb (1972; MF 417; 1975; OFR 75-429).|
Geologic descriptionPlacer gold was reported to have been discovered in 1903 and a small amount of mining, probably by hand, also apparently took place that year (Moffit, 1905). This is the only report of activity on this creek (Cobb, 1975, OFR 75-429). The nature of the bedrock in this area is not known due to almost continuous surficial cover (Till and others, 1986).
