|Location and accuracy||Nutmoyuk Creek is a west tributary to Timber Creek (BN084) and Timber Creek is a south tributary to Koyuk River. This approximate location is on the south side of the pass between upper Nutmoyuk Creek and a northeast headwater tributary to Tubutulik River. It is locality 43 of Gamble (1988).|
Geologic descriptionLocally dolomitic and silicified marble, is cut by quartz veinlets and some oxidized sulfide veinlets (Hudson and others, locality 179, p. 16). There is some minor malachite staining. Mining claims were located in this area in 1975.
