Geological similarities with Alice Creek and Toop Nugget Mines

  • Black sand content in the samples is quite low, which is similar to what Roed (1995) described in his paper "Magnetite is rarely found in the sluice box. Numerous pans failed to recover any black sand of any type except for pyrite cubes. The lack of "heavies" and the comparative abundance of nuggets, is anomalous with respect to other placer deposits in the area." (p. 93)
  • The best gold values were observed in weakly cemented gravels which are not very common in the area. A paystreak in weakly cemented gravels was mentioned by Levson and Giles (1993) on page 65.
  • There's a layer of poorly sorted gravels with extremely high clay content that underlie gold-bearing gravels. Similar layer was mentioned by Levson and Giles (1993) on page 67: "The lowermost auriferous deposits were not observed but they reportedly are poorly sorted gravels containing substantial quantities of clay, probably deposited by mud flows (Roed, 1988). They stratigraphically underlie cemented, auriferous gravels".
