|Location and accuracy||The Leidy prospect, in the NE1/4, SW1/4, sec. 24, T. 2 N., R. 1 E., Fairbanks Meridian, is beside the road on the north side of Gilmore Creek, about a quarter of a mile west of the mouth of Tom Creek.|
Geologic descriptionA shaft was sunk 40 feet on a glassy quartz vein. The vein strikes N. 70 W. and dips 50 N. The bedrock is schist with a thin covering of placer gravel. The ground had been sluiced and it is possible that gold was from a placer rather than a lode deposit (Hill, 1933, p. 155).
