|Current site name||Carrie Creek|
|Alternate or previous names||Lynx Saddle, Missing Lynx, Tripper Ridge, West Carrie Creek|
|Geographic coordinates:||-144.26584, 64.28778 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The Carrie Creek prospect is located in the headwaters of the West Fork of the South Fork of the Goodpaster River, approximately 54 miles east-northeast of Delta Junction. The prospect covers 5 to 6 square miles, and is divided into four areas: Lynx Saddle, Missing Lynx, Tripper Ridge, and West Carrie Creek. The approximate center of the prospect is in SW1/4SW1/4 section 19, T. 7 S., R. 18 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian. A winter trail from the South Fork of the Goodpaster River provides access up Divide Creek. Carrie Creek and its tributaries are not labeled on current U.S.G.S. maps. It was not identified as a separate location by Cobb (1972) or by Cobb and Eberlein (1980). The Carrie Creek prospect is located on land selected by Doyon Limited. An occurrence was cited in Cobb and Eberlein (1980) for a sample assay reported in Menzie and Foster (1979). This sample was collected from somewhere on Tripper Ridge on Black Mountain in section 20, T. 7 S., R. 18 E., of the Fairbanks Meridian.|
