|Location and accuracy||California Creek is a northeast-flowing tributary to Yankee Creek, whose mouth is approximately 1000 feet south of the junction of Yankee Creek and the Innoko River. The coordinates are for the location of a pan-concentrate sample collected from California Creek by Bundtzen and others (1987), in the SW1/4SW1/4, sec. 14., T. 28 S., R. 13 E., Kateel River Meridian. The location is accurate within 500 feet.|
Geologic descriptionThe bedrock in the area around California Creek is mostly sedimentary. The area also contains several Cretaceous or Tertiary monzonite plutons (Chapman and others, 1985), and dikes of varying composition. A pan- concentrate from California Creek contained magnetite, ilmenite, enstatite, anatase, rutile, edenite, two grains of native silver, and one grain of gold (Bundtzen and others, 1987).
