|Location and accuracy||Mertie (1938, p. 91) reported that fine placer gold was found on creeks draining the north and west sides of Tikchik Mountain. This location, on the north flank of Tikchik Mountain, is arbitrarily chosen to represent these occurrences. The map site is in the NW1/4 of section 26, T 1 S, R 52 W, of the Seward Meridian. It is very approximately located, perhaps within miles. Cobb (1972 [MF 384]; 1976 [OF 76-606]) included these occurrences under the name 'Tikchik Mountain'.|
Geologic descriptionMertie (1938, p. 91) reported that fine placer gold was found in creeks draining the north and west sides of Tikchik Mountain. Bedrock in the area of Tikchik Mountain is clastic sedimentary rocks, inferred to be part of the mid-Cretaceous Kuskokwim Group, which is intruded by Upper Cretaceous or Lower Tertiary granitic rocks (Mertie, 1938).
