Location and accuracy The Creeks prospect is defined by a series of multi-element soil anomalies extending from the Hi Yu mine (ARDF no. LG182) on the west to Walnut Creek on the east. The location given is on a drill hole; 135 feet of it contained 0.014 ounces of gold per ton (Freeman and others, 1998).

Geologic setting

Geologic description

The Creeks prospect is defined by a series of multi-element soil anomalies extending from the Hi Yu mine on the west to Walnut Creek on the east (Freeman and others, 1998). These anomalies consist of large areas of moderate to strongly anomalous gold, arsenic, and antimony. 1998 drilling was designed to find mineralization in previously untested areas using widely spaced (+1,000 feet) reverse circulation drilling. One hole intercepted 135 feet with 0.014 ounces of gold per ton and anomalous gold pathfinder elements. Because of disappointing drill results, no work was recommended on the Creeks prospect in 1999.
