|Location and accuracy||Cobb (1972, MF-413), loc. 91; SE1/4NW1/4 sec. 20, T. 3 N., R. 3 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. Placer deposits are in the lower section of Walnut Creek, a tributary of Fairbanks Creek. Accuracy is within 1,000 feet.|
Geologic descriptionCoarse gold was mined from shallow placer ground on lower Walnut Creek (Ellsworth and Parker, 1911; Prindle and Katz, 1913). One nugget was valued at $45 (Prindle and Katz, 1913). Production from 1906 to 1908 was worth $8700 from gold valued at $17 per ounce (Prindle and Katz, 1913). Mining was reported from 1906 to 1908 and 1912 (Prindle and Katz, 1913; Ellsworth and Davenport, 1913).
