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 (Development): DISTRICT PRODUCED SPORADICALLY FROM 1860'S TO 1951
Comment (Deposit): THE VEID IS 6 TO 24 INCHES WIDE AND IS SIMILAR TO THE VEINS AT THE ELECTRIC MINE. SAMPLE 2832 WAS TAKEN OF HIGHLY BRECCIATED AND OXIDIZED VEIN MATERIAL FROM OPEN STOPES AND PROSPECTS. MUCH OF TH-E ORE IS STAINED WITH A YELLOW OXIDE THOUGHT TO BE BINDHEIMITE
