|Current site name||Neck Creek|
|Alternate or previous names||Coon Gulch|
|Geographic coordinates:||-150.00332, 67.4697 (WGS84)|
|Relative position||The location of Neck Creek is imprecise; it probably is the same as Coon Gulch, shown on modern maps, which is located approximately 4 miles west northwest of Minnie Creek Lake. Reed (1938) described the location of this creek as a left-limit tributary of the Middle Fork Koyukuk River that empties into the Middle Fork about 1/4 mile above the mouth of the Hammond River. The prospect may actually be in the Wiseman quadrangle west of the Chandalar quadrangle, but the reference point has been plotted in the Chandalar quadrangle near the western limit of Coon Gulch (SE1/4 sec. 33, T. 31 N., R. 11 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian). The location is accurate within a 2-mile radius.|
