|Location and accuracy||Redman and others (1989) panned minor amounts of gold from what is locally called Anmer Creek. The site is plotted at about the middle of the creek in the SE1/4 section 31, T. 45 S., R. 72 E.|
Geologic descriptionPlacer gold was panned from what is locally called Anmer Creek in the 1980s (Redman and others, 1989). There is no record of earlier work. The rocks in this area consist of black phyllite with scattered, concordant quartz veins; it is part of the Cretaceous to Permian metavolcanic unit of Gehrels and Berg (1992).
