Geologic descriptionAn unpublished National Park Service map and accompanying database identify this locality as a placer gold prospect. Quaternary surficial deposits cover this area and bedrock is not exposed. Cretaceous siliciclastic sedimentary rocks intruded by Tertiary hypabyssal felsic plutons probably make up most of the unexposed bedrock in the area (MacKevett, 1978).
