|Location and accuracy||The map site of this placer gold occurrence is on the northwest bank of Honolulu Creek, just downstream from the George Parks Highway. It is in the SW1/4 of sec. 30, T. 21 S., R. 10 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. The placer apparently extends downstream from the east boundary of sec. 30, to the mouth of Honolulu Creek. This site corresponds to loc. D-24 in Balen (1990: OFR 34-90). Also see Additional comments.|
Geologic descriptionHonolulu Creek drains an area underlain by Tertiary (Eocene?) intrusive rocks and Lower Cretaceous or Upper Jurassic turbidite (Wilson and others, 1998). The placer gold in Honolulu Creek may have been derived from the erosion of lode deposits like those at HE131 and HE133.
