|Current site name||Unnamed|
|Alternate or previous names||Nesbit Creek ?|
|Geographic coordinates:||-163.83332, 65.15933 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||Smith and Eakin (1911) describe this location as being on the divide between Kingsland and Nugget Creeks. Neither creek is identified on the current topographic map of the area (Bendeleben A-4 quadrangle). However, Nesbit Creek is the main headwater tributary to what is now known as Kingsley Creek. It is assumed that an unnamed east tributary to upper Niukluk River is the creek referred to as Nugget Creek by Smith and Eakin (1911). Therefore, this very approximately located occurrence is assumed to be on the ridge crest between Nesbit Creek and the unnamed tributary to Niukluk River. It is locality 11 of Cobb (1972; MF 417; 1975; OFR 75-429).|
