|Location and accuracy||Texas Creek is a small southwest tributary of Fish Creek. Texas Creek is not labeled on the U.S. Geological Survey topographic map of the Eagle B-4 quadrangle (1956). The location of prospecting on Texas Creek is uncertain; the coordinates are arbitrarily placed about 1.5 miles upstream of the mouth of the creek,in section 26, T. 7 S., R. 25 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The location is only accurate within 1.5 miles. Texas Creek is locality 28 of Burleigh and Lear (1994).|
Geologic descriptionBedrock along Texas Creek consists of Paleozoic schist, greenschist, quartzite, and marble that have been intruded by Mesozoic hornblende granodiorite (Foster, 1976). Good placer gold prospects were reported on Texas Creek in 1914 (Brooks, 1915).
