Geologic description

Placer gold claims are reported 3.7 miles southwest of Newhalen on a 1.2 mile long creek that flows southeasterly from lake 103 into Lake Iliamna (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1973; MacKevett and Holloway, 1977). Nothing is known about the deposit or the character of the gold. The nearest exposed bedrocks are volcanic rocks of Tertiary age (Detterman and Reed, 1980).
