|Location and accuracy||Discovery Creek flows north-northeast from Niitltoktalogi Mountain and then southeast to the Koyukuk River. The exact location of placer prospects on this creek are unknown and the map site is arbitrarily plotted at the location of a recent sample site of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (Kurtak and others, 1999). It is in the SE1/4 of section 6, T. 12 N., R. 25 E. of the Kateel River Meridian.|
Geologic descriptionA panned sample from three pans of gravel produced one fine gold particle (Kurtak and others, 1999). The rocks in the area are Cretaceous graywacke and mudstone (Patton and Miller, 1966). No other information is available.
