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.

Comment (Deposit): WORKINGS EXPOSE MASSIVE WHITE QUARTZ VEIN, HIGHLY SHATTERED AND BRECCIATED. PROMINENT SHEARING PERPENDICULAR TO VEIN. THE VEIN IS HEAVILY STAINED WITH FE-MN OXIDES. ADDITIONAL QUARTZ VEINS OUTCROP UPSLOPE FROM SITE. FRAGMENTS OF QUARTZ PORPHYRY INTRUSIVE CONTAIN MINOR PYRITE OXIDIZING TO HEMATITE AND GOSSAN. VEIN IS PROBABLY FILLING A FAULT WHICH SEPARATES SHALE FROM OVERLYING QUARTZITE. MALACHITE IN FLOAT NEARBY
Comment (Workings): TRENCH/SURFACE SCRAPINGS ALONG SLOPE, (PROBABLY ASSESSMENT WORK)
