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): THE PROPERTY INCLUDES CLAIMS NOS. 1,2, AND 3. ON ADRIENE NO. 1 CLAIM TWO QUARTZ-ANTIMONY VEINS OCCUR IN INTERBEDDED SHALE AND QUARTZITE WITH MAIN VEIN, 8 TO 12 INCHES WIDE, STRIKES N5W AND DIPS 45-65 DEGREES W TERMINING AGAINST A 6 TO 12 INCH VEIN STRIKING N65W AND DIPS 70 DEGREES S. QUARTZ-SB SINGERS OCCUR AT THE INTERSECTION OF THE TWO VEINS. ON ADRIENE NO. 2 CLAIM 4 TO 24 INCH QUARTZ-SB VEINS STRIKING N20W AND DIPPING 70-75 DEGREES W OCCUR IN QUARTZE WITH SOME INTERBEDDED SANDSTONE. THE VEIN MAY BE A CONTINUATION OF THAT ON THE ADRIENE NO.1 CLAIM. ANTIMONY OCCURS AS PODS AND INDIVIDUAL CRYSTALS OF STIBNITE IN THE QUARTZ STRINGERS. MUCH OF THE STIBNITE HAS BEEN OXIDIZED. PODS OF SB OXIDE AND STIBNITE IN 2-5 CM QUARTZ VEINLETS; PHYLLITES ARE LARGELY BARREN, PROBABLY A FACTOR OF THE GREATER COMPETENCY OF SANDSTONE VERSUS PHYLLITES.; MODEL NAME COULD ALSO BE: SIMPLE SB.
