Location and accuracy Livingston Creek is a southeast tributary of the Feather River. It joins the Feather River about 2 miles west of the Nome-Teller road. The creek has had placer mining claims over its lower 3 miles (Heiner and Porter, 1972, p. 162). The location given is the approximate mid-point of the portion of the creek where claims were staked.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

Livingston Creek has had placer mining claims over its lower 3 miles (Heiner and Porter, 1972, p. 162). The creek mostly flows over glacial deposits derived from the Kigluaik Mountains (Sainsbury, Smith, and Kachadoorian, 1972). Any placer gold deposits that are present are probably reworked glacial deposits.
