|Location and accuracy||Rabbit Creek is a small headwater tributary to Iron creek (SO127). The mouth of Rabbit Creek is close to the confluence of Canyon Creek and Dome Creek, where Iron Creek starts. This is locality 30 of Cobb (1972, MF 445; 1978, OF 78-181).|
Geologic descriptionRabbit Creek was staked and some placer mining occurred prior to 1909. The recovered gold was fine, flaky, and bright (Smith, 1909). Bedrock in the area is part of a lower Paleozoic metasedimentary assemblage (Till and others, 1986).
