Geologic descriptionThere are 2 large gravel basins in Lemon Creek, both were worked for placer gold in the late 1880s and early 1900s. The upper basin was location of the Glacier placer. The gravels lie on glacial clay in the bedrock-dammed basins. Gold was recovered but there is no documentation of the amount (Redman and others, 1989). U.S. Bureau of Mines samples at the Glacier placer contained 0.0002 ounces gold per cubic yard (Redman and others, 1989).
