|Location and accuracy||The Golden Bell placer gold prospect is on upper Partin Creek. The map site is in the NE1/4 of sec. 1, T. 22 S., R. 13 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This is location E-38 of Balen (1990: OFR 34-90).|
Geologic descriptionThe Golden Bell placer gold prospect is on upper Partin Creek. The creek drains Upper Triassic limestone and basalt, Upper Devonian sheared serpentinite, basalt, and chert, and Lower Jurassic and Uper Triassic redbed sandstones (Wilson and others, 1998). These strata are cut by several generations of veins probably related to Upper Cretaceous to Lower Tertiary plutons in the area. It is probable that the placer gold was derived from the erosion of the veins, but the hostrocks of the veins can not be discounted as a gold source.
