|Location and accuracy||The Cody Creek occurrence is probably in sections 6, 7, 8 or 18, T. 10 S., R. 7 W., Fairbanks Meridian. The exact locations of placer gold prospects along Cody Creek are uncertain. The coordinates given are for the approximate center of the drainages, and the placer workings could easily be a mile or more away.|
Geologic descriptionCody Creek drains an area underlain by the California Creek Member of the Totatlanika Schist; it consists of gray quartz-orthoclase-sericite schist and augen gneiss (Wahrhaftig, 1970 [GQ-810]). In 1916, placer gold was reported, but no mining took place (Maddren, 1918, p. 368).
