|Location and accuracy||Gold dredging was attempted at this location on Nome River approximately 2 miles below Banner Creek. The map location is at the southwest corner of section 16, T. 10 S., R. 33 W., Kateel River Meridian. It is locality 115 of Cobb (1972 [MF 463], 1978 [OFR 78-93]) and is probably accurate to within one-third mile.|
Geologic descriptionFine gold is commonly found on the bars of Nome River. This site is an area where an unsuccessful dredge operation was attempted below the mouth of Banner Creek (Moffit, 1913).
