|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 64; SW1/4 sec. 10, T. 8 N., R. 5 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This placer deposit is located where Myrtle Creek crosses a bench of Livengood Creek; It is just west of the old town of Livengood. Accuracy is within 1,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionPlacer mining was reported in 1916 (Brooks, 1918, p. 56). Cobb (1973; B 1374) indicated that the gold was probably reconcentrated from bench deposits of Livengood Creek. This site is no longer a separate placer deposit, but is included with Livengood Creek (ARDF no. LG008) in more recent references.
