Mulberry Creek Placer

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 opperated in the past as a production but was closed at the time it was surveyed. There were no known plans to reopen it. A placer operation was at this site or proposed for it.
