Location and accuracy Agitator Creek is a southeast flowing tributary to the Middle Fork Chandalar River. Its confluence with the Middle Fork is about 14 1/2 miles southeast of Chandalar. The reference point is plotted about 1/4 mile above the mouth (junction of sections 20, 21, 28, and 29, T. 29 N., R. 3 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian); there is no information regarding the exact location of any work or prospecting that may have been done on this creek. The location is accurate within a 1/2-mile radius.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

Reed (1930, MR 31-4, p. 10) noted that encouraging prospects had reportedly been found in the early days (about 1910) but that no mining had occurred and no prospecting was taking place at the time of Reed's report. No other information is available on this occurrence.
