Porcupine Creek is a creek in the Porcupine District in Alaska. It is here where the Hoffman Group mined on a claim owned by Earle Foster. The mined for an entire year, getting only $20,000 of gold. During the off-season, the Hoffman's missed a payment, and Fred Hurt, an enemy of the Hoffman's who was forced to work with them, bought the lease, and kicked the Hoffman's out. The Hoffman Crew then went to Quartz Creek to mine.
