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.

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.

Comment (Deposit): QUARTZ VEIN FILLS FAULT WITH MASSIVE EUHEDRAL CRYSTALS FILLING OPEN SPACES. ABUNDANT CRYSTALLINE JAROSITE. GOLD PROBABLY IN OXIDIZED PYRITE IN QUARTZ. BOTRYOIDAL HEMATITE OCCURS ALONG WITH GOSSAN. QUARTZ VEIN IS SHATTERED AND STAINED BY LIMONITE. SILICEOUS BEDS ARE SHATTERED, ALMOST BRECCIATED, WITH ABUNDANT MN OXIDE STAIN. GREY ZONES IN QUARTZITE SUGGEST THAT FINELY DISSEMINATED SULFIDES ARE PRESENT. FINE-GRAINED PYRITE IS ALSO DISSEMINATED IN QUARTZITE ADJACENT TO VEIN.
