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.

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 (Deposit): DEPOSIT IS IN A LARGE ALLUVIAL FAN EXTENDING WESTWARD FROM ROSEBUD PEAK. THE FAN CONSISTS OF BOTH ANGULAR AND ROUNDED ROCK FRAGMENTS INCLUDING RHYOLITE, ANDESITE, QUARTZ, SILICIFIED FAULT BRECCIA, AND PHYLLITE. THE GRAVELS OVERLIE A CLAY LAYER WHICH UNDERLIES THE ENTIRE PLACER AREA AND FORMS A FALSE BEDROCK HORIZON SEPARATING GOLD-BEARING GRAVELS FROM UNDERLYING BARREN GRAVELS. MOST OF THE PLACER MINING ACTIVITY WAS CONCENTRATED IN GULLIES THAT DISSECT THE FAN. ; INFO.SRC : 1 PUB LIT; 2 UNPUB REPT; 3 FIELD OBSERV
