Thousand Springs Creek is a stream in the U.S. states of Nevada and Utah. [1] It is a tributary to Grouse Creek. [1]

The stream headwaters arise in northeast Nevada on the east slope of the Snake Mountains and it flows east through the Dake Reservoir into northwest Utah to Grouse Creek 3.2 km (2.0 mi) northwest of Lucin. [1]

Thousand Springs Creek was named for the fact it is fed by many springs along its course. [2]

Grouse Creek block An accreted terrane west of the Wyoming craton

The Grouse Creek block is a Precambrian basement province of 2.45 to 2.70 billion year old orthogneisses. The Grouse Creek block is one of several Proterozoic and Archean accreted terranes that lie to the north and west of the Wyoming craton, including the Farmington Canyon Complex, the Selway terrane, the Medicine Hat block and the Priest River complex. Together, these terranes comprise part of the basement rock of the North American continent and have been critical to studies of crustal accretion in the Precambrian. Ongoing study of the Grouse Creek block will contribute to understanding the paleogeography of the Wyoming craton prior to its incorporation into the supercontinent Laurentia approximately 1.86 billion years ago. The name was proposed by David Foster and others.
