|Location and accuracy||This prospect is on Canyon Creek, a west tributary to Goodnews River. It is 1/2 mile downstream of the mouth of Bear Creek, a south tributary to Canyon Creek. It is probably located to within 1/4 mile. It is locality 18 of Hoare and Cobb (1977) and of Cobb and Condon (1972).|
Geologic descriptionA placer gold prospect is present along Canyon Creek about 1/2 mile downstream from the mouth of Bear Creek, which contains productive gold placers (GO016, GO017; Hoare and Coonrad, 1961). Bedrock in the area includes Paleozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary and volcanic rocks, locally intruded by Upper Cretaceous to Lower Tertiary granitic rocks and Jurassic mafic/ultramafic plutonic rocks (Hoare and Coonrad, 1978).
