GOLD CREEK. Gold Creek, also known as Keno Creek, rises in east central Dawson County (at 32°45' N, 101°53' W) and runs southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, in southwestern Borden County (at 32°39' N, 101°40' W). It crosses an area of flat to gently sloping terrain, moderately steep slopes, and locally high relief, surfaced by loose sand and silt loams that support scrub brush, grasses, and mesquite.
