|Location and accuracy||This alluvial gold placer mine is on Hazel Creek, a small west tributary to Flambeau River. Flambeau River is the next major drainage east of Nome River. Some small-scale placer mining took place on lower Hazel Creek where it enters the valley of Flambeau River. The map location is at an elevationof about 300 feet in the SE1/4 section 17, T. 9 S., R. 32 W., Kateel River Meridian. The location is probably accurate within one-quarter mile; it is locality 144 of Cobb (197 [MF 463], 1978 [OFR 78-93]).|
Geologic descriptionSome small-scale placer gold mining took place in about 1905 on lower Hazel Creek where it enters the valley of Flambeau River (Moffit, 1913, p. 101). The eastward extension of the Anvil Creek fault is projected through Hazel Creek near this location (Hummel, 1962 [MF 247]).
