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.

Land ownership: BLM Administrative Area
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): UTM IS TO SAMPLE SITE 2838. UTM OF SITE 2839 IS N 4484230, E379200 . INFO FROM LAND.ST :(1972)
Comment (Development): INACTIVE IN 1984
Comment (Deposit): A SERIES OF PROSPECTS ALONG A N-TRENDING VEIN SYSTEM IN SILTSTONE THAT BEARS N45E AND DIPS IRREGULARLY. SAMPLE 2838 WAS A BRECCIATED AND SILICIFIED PORTION OF A VEIN WITH PYRITE, ANTIMONY, AND POSSIBLY AG. SAMPLE 2839 WAS TO THE NORTH OF THE FIRST ONE BY ABOUT 300 YDS AND CONTAINED VISIBLE PYRITE AND OTHER SULFIDES IN A QUARTZ VEIN AND IN THE ADJACENT SILTSTONE HOST ROCK.
