|Location and accuracy||Placer mining claims have been staked on Gold Run Creek, a headwater tributary to Bonita Creek (Kardex site Kx 207; Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys, 1982). Bonita Creek is a headwater tributary to Osborn Creek (NM305), a major east tributary to Nome River. The map location is at an elevation of about 600 feet, at the center of section 2, T 10 S, T. 10 S., R. 33 W., Kateel River Meridian. This location is probably accurate to within one-third mile.|
Geologic descriptionMining claims have been staked for gold and antimony on Gold Run, a headwater tributary to Bonita Creek (Kardex site Kx 207, Heiner and Porter, 1972; Alaska Division of Geological and Geophysical Surveys, 1982). Bedrock in this area is marble and schist that is locally cut by high-angle faults, including an eastward extension of the Anvil Creek fault (Hummel, 1962 [MF 247]).
