About the MRDS Data:
All mine locations were obtained from the USGS Mineral Resources Data System. The locations and other information in this database have not been verified for accuracy. It should be assumed that all mines are on private property.
Elevation: 6,499 Feet (1,981 Meters)

MRDS mine locations are often very general, and in some cases are incorrect. Some mine remains have been covered or removed by modern industrial activity or by development of things like housing. The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains.
Yellow Rose MRDS details
Primary: Yellow Rose
Land ownership: National Forest
Note: the land ownership field only identifies whether the area the mine is in is generally on public lands like Forest Service or BLM land, or if it is in an area that is generally private property. It does not definitively identify property status, nor does it indicate claim status or whether an area is open to prospecting. Always respect private property.

Comment (Location): UTM ACC. NW 1/4 NE 1/4
Comment (Workings): MAIN WORKINGS OF YELLOW ROSE ON SOUTH SIDE OF DIVIDE, DORLESKA ON NORTH SIDE. PROSPECTORS PREVIOUS TO 1931, KEPT IN SOFT MATERIAL, LEAVING SILICIFIED, HARD DIKES AS AN UNBROKEN WALL ON ONE SIDE OF THE WORKING. PROJECTED DEVELOPMENT WAS TO PROSPECT DIKES TO FIND ENDS OF VEINS SHEARED OFF BY FAULTING. 4 ADITS, LOWEST 1400 FT. LONG. NEXT ABOVE, 170 FT. HIGHER & 710 FT. LONG. CROSSCUT AND 345 FT. OF UNWORKED BACKS ABOVE LOWEST LEVEL.
Comment (Geology): DIKES CUT MASS OF SERPENTINE AND SCHIST. PROSPECTING THROUGH 1931 WAS DONE WITH IDEA THAT CLAYEY ORE WAS RESULT OF FAULT-DRAG FROM QUARTZ VEINS IN DIKES.
Comment (Deposit): 60 ACRES. PATENTED. U.S. MINERAL SURVEY 3780. 5 ACRE MILLSITE. COMPRISES RED ROSE, FRIENDSHIP, DORLESKA CLAIMS. PROPERTY DISCOVERED IN 1897. MINE IS PARTLY IN SISKIYOU CO. AND PARTLY IN TRINITY COUNTY. ; INFO.SRC : 1 PUB LIT
Comment (Deposit): DIKES & VEINS: ONE DIKE 50 FT. THICK CUTS SERPENTINE NEAR SCHIST CONTACT AND PARALLEL TO IT. A MINERALIZED FAULT ZONE IS ALSO PARALLEL TO CONTACT ALONG DIKE FOOTWALL. NEAR YELLOW ROSE MINE, EAST SIDE OF DIKE CONTAINS HORNBLENDE PRISMS AND IS THE "CROW'S FOOT PORPHYRY" OF THE PROSPECTOR. WEST SIDE SHOWS BIOTITE AND SOME QUARTZ. DIKE MINERALIZED WHERE CUT BY SIDE FISSURES. RICH SHOOTS OF CLAYEY MATERIAL. DIPPING 45 N. CHARACTERIZE FISSURE INTERSECTIONS. DIKE IS CAMPTONITE ON EAST SIDE, KEVSANTITE ON WEST SIDE. SOFT OXIDIZED MATERIAL YIELDED RICH ORE.
Comment (Commodity): GOUGE IN ONE DIKE SAID TO PAN WELL IN GOLD
Comment (Production): NO OTHER PRODUCTION RECORD FOUND
