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 (Location): INFO FROM LAND.ST :1972
Comment (Development): RECENT FLAGGING
Comment (Deposit): SHEETED QUARTZ VEIN SYSTEM. VEINS ARE COMPOSED OF COMB OR PRISMATIC QUARTZ, ARE SUB-PARALLEL IN ORIENTATION AND CUT THE HOST ROCK IN A ZONE MORE THAN 10 FT WIDE. THE MAIN VEIN IS 1-3 FT WIDE WIDE WITH SMALLER SUB-PARALLEL VEINS AND VEINLETS EXTENDING OUTWARD INTO HOST. TYPICALLY, THE VEINS ARE WHITE AND BANDED OR FORM COCKADE (RADIATING) OR DRUSY ENCRUSTATIONS ON SILICIFIED AND BLEACHED ROCK FRAGMENTS. MOST VEINS HAVE OPEN CENTERS OR FE-STAINED VUGS. CALCITE AND SIDERITE INTER-LENSES COMPOSE ALMOST HALF THE VEIN. QUARTZ AFTER CALCITE PSEUDOMORPHS ARE VERY COMMON. SEVERAL STAGES OF VEINING ARE EVIDENT. SOME VEIN MATERIAL IS BRECCIATED.
Comment (Workings): STOPE/SHAFT COMBINATION; SEVERAL SMALL PROSPECTS AND WORKINGS
