|Location and accuracy||This site is approximately 1 1/2 miles south of the east end of Bob Johnson Lake (formerly Big Lake). The exact location along King Creek is indefinite; the reference point is the same as that for loc. 37 in DeYoung (1978). The location is accurate within a 1-mile radius.|
Geologic descriptionThere is little descriptive information on this occurrence. Reed (1938) reported prospecting which reportedly found only small amounts of gold in a 70- to 75-foot shaft. A second shaft about 600 feet farther downstream from the first shaft reportedly found nothing.
