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.
Commodity: Silver, Copper

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 (Geology): MALACHITE AND AZURITE OCCUR ALONG A NORTH-TRENDING FAULT IN CHERT & QUARTZITE
Comment (Development): 2 RECENT (1984?) DRILL HOLES, BULLDOZER WORK
Comment (Deposit): OXIDE COPPER MINERALS AND TETRAHEDRITE OCCUR ALONG AN30W, 80SW VEIN IN LIGHT GREY CHERT. ZONE OF VEIN MATTER AND O-XIDE COPPER MINERALS IS AT LEAST 1 M WIDE AT THE MAIN (NORTHER-N) SHAFT WHERE THE SAMPLE WAS COLLECTED. QUARTZ VEIN MATTER IS- SPOTTY, GENERALLY FINE-GRAINED, RARELY DRUSY. MASSIVE SULFOSA-LTS OCCUR BETWEEN WALLS OF QUARTZ VEIN MATTER, AS OBSERVED IN -DUMP SAMPLES. LIMESTONE IS EXPOSED ABOUT 50 M NORTH OF THE DEE-PER SHAFT, AND ALTERED FELSIC PORPHYRY IS SEEN AS FLOAT BETWEE-N THE TWO SHAFTS.
