Location: The Sweet Glory placer gold claims are along an unnamed, north-northwest flowing tributary to Butte Creek. The tributary joins Butte Creek about 1.5 miles below where Butte Creek changes direction from south to east. The area of placer activity extends upstream from the mouth of the tributary to the map site, which is in the NE1/4 of sec. 18, T. 22 S., R. 1 W., of the Fairbanks Meridian. This is location B-12 of Balen (1990: OFR 34-90).
Geology: The drainage area feeding the Sweet Glory gold placers is underlain by two geological units, each of which is a potential source of gold. The lower part of the drainage is Cretaceous to Jurassic interbedded conglomerate and sandstone, and flows and dikes of andesitic to latitic feldspar porphyry. The upper part of the drainage is greenstone.
Workings: There has only been surface exploration.
Age: Quaternary.
