|Location and accuracy||Boston Creek is location 10 of Eberlein and others, 1977. Boston Creek is approximately 8 miles long, and is a west-flowing tributary of Main Creek. The coordinates above, corresponding to those of location 10 of Eberlein and others (1977), fall in section 8, T. 10 S., R. 17 E. of the Kateel River meridian. No specific location has been recorded for the prospects at the headwaters of Boston Creek. Location is accurate within 4 miles.|
Geologic descriptionBoston Creek is underlain by Paleozoic phyllite and quartzite at its head (Puchner and others, 1998). In the winter of 1907-08, an undetermined small number of prospect holes were sunk along the creek. A few colors of gold may have been found, and pyrite was reported (Maddren, 1910).
