|Location and accuracy||Several placer gold occurrences are distributed along about 2 miles of Little Honolulu Creek. The map site is at about the midpoint of the occurrences, in the SE1/4 of sec. 8, T. 22 S., R. 10 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This is location D-23 of Balen (1990: OFR 34-90).|
Geologic descriptionLittle Honolulu Creek drains an area underlain by Tertiary (Eocene?) granodiorite and granite intruding Lower Cretaceous and Upper Jurassic metamorphosed turbidites (Wilson and others, 1998). The placer gold was probably derived from the erosion of lode deposits such as those at HE131 and HE133.
