|Location and accuracy||Gold Run Creek is a 2 1/2-mile-long, east-flowing tributary of Flint Creek. Coordinates corresponding to location 25 of Eberlein and others (1977) are arbitrarily placed at the approximate midpoint of the creek, in section 36, T. 12 S., R. 17 E. of the Kateel River meridian. The location is accurate within 2 miles.|
Geologic descriptionThe bedrock underlying Gold Run Creek is Paleozoic phyllite and quartzite (Puchner and others, 1998). Mertie (1936) reported that prospecting occurred on this creek prior to 1933. There probably was no mining on this creek (Eberlein and others, 1977).
