Geologic descriptionBedrock underlying Traverse Creek is the Lower Schist unit described by Wiltse and others (1995) as a slightly calcareous quartz-muscovite schist, porphyroblastic-albite-quartz-chlorite-muscovite schist, and lesser amounts of quartzose porphyroblastic-albite-chlorite schist. Gold can be panned from the gravel in Traverse Creek, but the drainage has a steep gradient and contains little gravel (Yeend, 1991).
