Location and accuracy The U.S. Bureau of Mines (1998) locates the mine in the northwest quarter of Section 19, T. 27 N., R. 12 W., of the Seward Meridian about five miles north of the summit of Fairview Mtn. on a creek shown as Camp Creek.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

Placer gold occurs in Pleistocene (?) sediments (U.S. Bureau of Mines, 1998) . No geologic description is published for this property.
Cobb and Reed (1980) indicate that most of the mining in the basin was on Mills (TL059), Pass (TL024), and Twin (TL026) Creeks five to six miles to the southeast. Some production may have been from Camp Creek itself, but if so, the location cannot be pinpointed. Platinum is reported in the basin (Capps, 1913).

Additional comments

Cobb and Reed (1980) indicate that most of the mining in the basin was on Mills (TL059), Pass (TL024), and Twin (TL026) Creeks five to six miles to the southeast. Some production may have been from Camp Creek itself, but (if so) the location cannot be pinpointed. Platinum is reported in the basin (Capps, 1913).
