|Location and accuracy||Rose Creek is a tributary of Coal Creek, but is not labeled on current maps. The map site is arbitrarily placed at the approximate midpoint of Coal Creek in section 3, T. 5 N., R. 22 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian, since the exact location of prospecting and (or) mining is not known. The location is accurate to within 20 miles.|
Geologic descriptionProspecting or mining activity was reported in 1912 along a tributary of Coal Creek (CY006) called Rose Creek (Ellsworth and Davenport, 1913). Presumably Rose Creek crosses the same Tertiary conglomerate that is the source of placer gold for other creeks in the area (Dover and Miyaoka, 1988).
