GOLDMINE CREEK. Goldmine Creek rises four miles west of Oxford in south central Llano County (at 30°37' N, 98°46' W) and runs southeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, four miles southwest of Oxford (at 30°34' N, 98°44' W). It traverses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected and surfaced by sandy to clay loams. Local vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
