Luke Creek Occurrence, Yukon-Koyukuk Borough, Alaska, USA
Location: Luke Creek is not named on the Wiseman B-4 topographic map. It is described by Reed (1938) as a small creek that runs east to the head of Trout Lake, which also is unnamed on the current B-4 topographic map, but it is the lake immediately south of Wild Lake (Chipp, 1972). Of the two short creeks that enter Trout Lake from the west, the coordinates arbitrarily identify the northern one as Luke Creek. The site of the prospecting on this or the other of these creeks is unknown.
Geology: Reed (1938) reported placer gold prospects on Luke Creek. No other information is available.
Workings: Prospecting only.
Commodities (Major) - Au
Development Status: None
Deposit Model: Placer Au (Cox and Singer, 1986; model 39a)
