Carr Creek Placer

Carr Creek Placer is a past producer placer deposit site in the Appalachian Highlands of Alabama, The United States. It is a small deposit, located in the Chulafinnee District mining district and is not considered to be of world-class significance.

Gold is present at a grade sufficient to have a strong effect on the economics of an excavation project. It may even be viable as the only commodity mined.

This depost has operated in the past as a small scale production but was closed at the time it was surveyed. There were no known plans to reopen it.
