|Location and accuracy||This gold occurrence is on the divide at the head of Too Much Gold Creek, an upper tributary to Fairbanks Creek; NW1/4NW1/4 sec. 22, T. 3 N., R. 2 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. Accuracy is within 2,000 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThin quartz veins and mica schist wall rock, less than 1 foot thick, contain as much as 3.96 ppm gold (Pilkington and others, 1969). Another vein, that strikes N 75 W and dips 70 S, carries less gold. Samples across the richer veins and wall rock contained 0.63 to 3.96 ppm Au. A sample across the less-rich vein and wall rock contained 0.13 to 0.65 ppm Au.
