|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 68. This prospect is along Lucille Creek, a tributary of Livengood Creek, approximately 2.5 miles NNW of Amy Dome. Accuracy is within 1,500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionSome prospecting occurred on this creek in 1916, 1934, and possibly other years, but there are no records of mining (Mertie, 1918; Smith, 1936). A stream sediment sample showed 2.3 ppm gold, an anomalous amount (Eberlein, 1977, p. 67). Chromite and chrome spinels were found in placers (Joesting, 1942; ATDM Pamph. 1). Bedrock is silicified limestone/dolomite, chert, and greenstone.
