|Location and accuracy||Easy Money Creek is an east-flowing tributary of Tip Creek. Tip Creek flows into Flint Creek, which is a tributary of the Sulatna River. Easy Money Creek is approximately 6 miles long. The exact location of prospecting along the creek is not known; coordinates are arbitrarily placed at the approximate midpoint of the creek, in section 14, T. 12 S., R. 18 E. of the Kateel River meridian. The location is accurate within 3 miles.|
Geologic descriptionThe bedrock underlying the head of Easy Money Creek is Paleozoic phyllite and quartzite (Puchner and others, 1998). Mertie and Harrington (1924) reported that the creek was prospected in 1912 and that at the juncture of Easy Money Creek and Tip Creek, the depth to bedrock was 80 feet.
