Gold Creek is located in the historic Gunnison County. The Gunnison gold belt is an area of Proterozoic age metavolcanic, the Dubois Greenstone, and subordinate metasedimentary rocks exposed in the Gunnison Uplift. This belt occurs in southern Gunnison and northern Saguache Counties, extending from the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River east and northeast to Cochetopa Creek. The Gunnison gold belt extends to the northeast into the Cochetopa (Iris) mining district. The Dubois Greenstone was named for the old mining camp of Dubois by Hunter (1925), the first worker to describe in detail the Proterozoic geology of the area. The Dubois Greenstone was divided into 1) metavolcanic hornblende schist, amphibolite, and chlorite-hornblende schist with intercalated purplish gray, meta-chert beds; 2) felsic metavolcanic rocks including quartz prophyry flows and dikes and thinly interlayered muscovite-chlorite schist locally containing kyanite, staurolite, spinel, garnet, and sericitized andalusite; and 3) diverse metamorphosed epiclastic and pyroclastic rocks (Hedlund and Olson, 1981). Most of the Proterozoic terrane of the Dubois Greenstone has been metamorphosed to lower amphibolite facies, although metamorphic grades are as high as upper amphibolite facies. Upper amphibolite facies rock are associated with staurolite, kyanite, or andalusite and are concentrated in the western end of the belt. Green schist facies rocks with recognizable pillow structures in metabasalts and shard and pumice fragments in felsic metavolcanic rocks occur in the easternmost part of the greenstone belt (Sheridan and others, 1990). Also included in the Gunnison gold belt are metasedimentary rocks including phyllite and schist which were most likely argillites, siltites, and graywackes originally (Sheridan and others, 1990).
The Quartz Creek District was recognized by Henderson (1926), who described the area as overlapping both the Tin Cup and the Gold Brick Districts. Vanderwilt (1947) describes the district as 1-4 miles northeast of Pitkin near the road to Tincup. Dunn (2003) provides a more specific location description: bounded on the north by the ridge between Fairview Peak and the Continental Divide, on the east by the main range, on the south by Quartz Creek and on the west by the divide between Armstrong Gulch and Ohio Creek. She notes it has also been called the Quartz District.
Gunnison, the County seat, is situated in one of the prettiest valleys in the State of Colorado, the stretch of level land being admirably suited for the location of one of the future largest manufacturing cities in the West, and extending for miles around, the snow-capped mountains surrounding it, making it a natural and picturesque frame setting to the beautiful picture. Being centrally located, Gunnison is the principal supply point for the mines and ranches surrounding, just as it is destined to eventually become one of the greatest steel and iron manufacturing centers on the continent, as well as a very important smelter point for the many ores and minerals found in the various mining districts surrounding the city.
*Before heading to the claim, you will need to check the road conditions, since some of the roads can be closed different times and days
The area is full of dirt roads, so a good map and a good GPS unit is a must, but we'll show you exactly where it is on the map as well as provide you with the precise latitude and longitude of each corner marker, so finding it will not be a problem for you.
I advise caution whenever driving or hiking on this claim – the entire valley is dotted with abandoned mines – most of them are easy to see from a distance, but some of them are impossible to see until you are right on top of them. I would estimate that only 20% of them are roped or fenced off – the rest are wide open and you should be extremely careful if entering them.
