|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 91; SE1/4NE1/4 sec. 24, T. 3 N., R. 2 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. Mining most likely occurred in the lower section of Crane Creek, a north tributary of Fairbanks Creek.|
Geologic descriptionCrane Creek is a tributary of Fairbanks Creek and is underlain by quartz muscovite schist, quartzite, and chlorite quartzose schist (Newberry and others, 1996). About 1,765 ounces of gold was produced in 1908 which assayed at 822 fine (Prindle and Katz, 1913). Recent field observation of Crane Creek indicates that more recent mining has taken place in the lower section of the creek, probably in the 1980s (J. Schaefer, field observation, 1999).
