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.

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): 3 MILES NE OF PERSHING QUICKSILVER MINE
Comment (Deposit): DISCOVERED IN 1864 BY GEORGE SENN, ERECTED SMALL CRUCIBLE FURNACE BUT WAS UNSUCCESSFUL. 2500 TONS OF SB ORE MINED DURING W.W.I AND SMALL AMOUNT PRODUCED IN 1939. IN 1940 5 TONS OF ORE WITH 56% SB WERE PRODUCED. IN 1941 MINE WAS OPTIONED TO ANTIMONY PRODUCERS CO. AND TWO SMALL ORE SHIPMENTS MADE THAT YEAR. ORE IS DEVELOPED BY 3 ADITS AND NUMEROUS SMALL PITS. MOST OF THE ORE WAS MINED BY STOPING FROM TWO ADITS. THE MINE IS IN HIGHLY FRACTURED SEDIMENTARY ROCKS OF THE GRASS VALLEY FORMATION. ; INFO.SRC : 1 PUB LIT
Comment (Deposit): THE DEPOSIT IS IN HIGHLY FRACTURED ROCKS OF THE GRASS VALLEY FM. THE VEINS ARE IRREGULAR, BOTH IN WIDTH AND DIP. NUMEROUS SPLITS AND CROSS FAULTS COMPLICATE THEM. STIBNITE OCCURS AS PODS TO 30 INCHES ACROSS, DISSEMINATED GRAINS, AND INDIVIDUAL CRYSTALS IN QUARTZ VEINS IN SLATE. THE STIBNITE COMMONLY IS EQUIGRANULAR AND BLADED. VEIN IS OFFSET IN THE NW SEGMENT BY A SW TRENDING FAULT. TWO VEINS INTERSECT, ONE N45W, 45SW, THE OTHER N, 30W. VEIN SIZE DECREASES WITH DEPTH.; MODEL NAME COULD ALSO BE: SIMPLE SB.
