|Location and accuracy||Chickamin Gulch is a short, south tributary to Dome Creek (SO113). It is 0.5 miles downstream from the upper end of Dome Creek at the confluence of Eldorado and Telegram Creeks. This is locality 38 of Cobb (1972, MF 445; 1978, OF 78-181).|
Geologic descriptionA bench deposit along lower Chickamin Gulch contains fine, bright gold in sand (with some pebbles) that overlies solution-pitted marble (Smith, 1909). The sand is overlain by angular debris, possibly colluvium. Bedrock in the area is part of a lower Paleozoic metasedimentary assemblage (Till and others, 1986).
