|Location and accuracy||Dome Creek heads against the northeast side of Monument Mountain. A locality on this creek was not included by Cobb (1972; MF 417) but Cobb (1975; OFR 75-429; 1981; OFR 81-363A, p. A7) includes a prospect by this name in the quadrangle (he places it in the Koyuk district however). This locality could be anywhere in the Dome Creek drainage and cannot be located closer than a few miles.|
Geologic descriptionGood prospects were reported to be found on Dome Creek in 1901 (Mendenhall, 1902). It is assumed here that this reference is to placer gold prospects and that these were on the Dome Creek that has headwaters against Monument Mountain.
