The Onion Creek map area straddles the north slope of the Nisling Range to the south and the south slope of the Dawson Range to the north. Nisling River separates the two ranges and crosses the map area from east to west. Onion Creek is a major tributary to the Nisling River on the west side of the map area.
This map is based on 1991 mapping and compilation of previous Geological Survey of Canada mapping, namely McTaggart (1960), Kindle (1962), and Boyle (1965). The geology of the Keno Hill district is discussed more fully in Roots and Murphy (1992). Keno Hill map area is underlain primarily by highly deformed rocks of four map units, the Upper Proterozoic to Lower Cambiran Hyland Group, the Devono-Mississippian Earn Group, the Mississippian Keno Hill quartzite, and Triassic diorite.

This volume provides details of exploration and mining activity in Yukon for 1988, including placer mining. It discusses the geology of Yukon mineral deposits and mineral districts under active investigation and provides a summary of exploration work done by mineral exploration companies. Summaries are based on reports submitted to the department for assessment credit.
This map of the magnetic total field was derived from data acquired during an aeromagnetic survey carried out by Fugro Airborne Surveys during the period April 17, 2006 to August 26, 2007. The data were recorded using a split-beam cesium vapour magnetometer (sensitivity = 0.005 nT) mounted in the tail boom of a Cessna Caravan aircraft. The nominal traverse and control line spacings were, respectively, 800 m and 2600 m, and the aircraft flew at a nominal terrain clearance of 250 m. Traverse lines were oriented N30 degrees E with orthogonal control lines. The flight path was recovered following post-flight …
