|Location and accuracy||The Nulato River flows northeast through the northeast quarter of the Norton Bay quadrangle. The exact location of prospecting along the Nulato River is not known and the coordinates are arbitrarily placed at the approximate midpoint of the Nulato River within the Norton Bay quadrangle. The location is accurate within 10 miles.|
Geologic descriptionSchrader and Brooks (1900) note reports of gold in the headwaters of the Nulato River but they question the validity of these reports. The rocks in the vicinity of the Nulato River are graywacke, shale, grit, and conglomerate of the Cretaceous Shaktolik Group (Cass, 1959).
