MINERAL CREEK. Mineral Creek rises in two branches in central Robertson County. The North branch rises six miles northwest of Franklin and flows eight miles east. The South branch rises one mile east of Franklin and runs north for eight miles. From the confluence of these two branches (at 31°06' N, 96°24' W) Mineral Creek flows northeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Duck Creek, 2½ miles northeast of Easterly (at 31°08' N, 96°22' W). Slightly sloping to level terrain in the area is surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports post oak and grass.
