|Location and accuracy||Dome Creek is a small tributary of American Creek about 17 miles southwest of Eagle. The location of placer gold mining on Dome Creek is uncertain; the mine coordinates are arbitrarily placed about 1.5 miles upstream of the mouth of the creek, in section 30, T. 3 S., R. 31 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. There is another Dome Creek (EA079) in the Eagle B-1 quadrangle. Dome Creek is locality 20 of Burleigh and Lear (1994) and locality 39 of Cobb (1972 [MF-393]).|
Geologic descriptionThe rocks in the vicinity of Dome Creek are Paleozoic quartz-mica schist, greenschist, and local marble (Foster, 1976). Mining was reported on Dome Creek in several years from 1926 to 1937 (Smith, 1929; Smith, 1932; Smith, 1933 [B 836]; Smith, 1939 [B 910-A]). There has been considerable placer gold mining on American Creek (EA054) downstream of Dome Creek.
