|Location and accuracy||Camp Creek is a small north tributary to middle Tubutulik River. It is unnamed on the current USGS topographic map of the area (Bendeleben A-1 quadrangle). It is identified by Cobb (1972; MF 417; 1975; OFR 75-429) as locality 58; he places the mouth of Camp Creek 0.7 miles downstream of the mouth of Admiral Creek and 1.2 miles upstream of the mouth of Lost Creek. The location of this prospect is very approximate (probably within 1 or 2 miles).|
Geologic descriptionAn early report (Smith and Eakin, 1911) indicates that some small scale placer mining by horse scrapers was done for a few years before 1909. Schist is reported nearby (Smith and Eakin, 1911) but Ordovician carbonate rocks are what have been mapped more recently in the area (Till and others, 1986).
