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.

Primary: NBMG Sample Site 2907
District: Nightingale District
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 (Workings): SEVERAL SHALLOW BUT CAVED ADITS; LOWER ADIT IS ABOUT 50 FT LONG
Comment (Deposit): PEGMATITE VEINS IN A STRONGLY WEATHERED GRANODIORITE. LOWER ADIT IS ABOUT 50 FT LONG AND FOLLOWS THE STRIKE OF A N 60 W, 70 SW FAULT. THE PEGMATITE VEIN BEARS N 25-35 E, AND HAS DARK STREAKS OF BLACK TOURMALINE, AS WELL AS MINOR SULFIDES. THE UPPER ADIT IS 75 FEET ABOVE AND ON SAME STRIKE AS THE LOWER VEIN SYSTEM, BUT AT THIS POINT, THE VEIN IS SURROUNDED BY PINK POTASSIC FELDSPARS SEVERAL FEET THICK...THE MACRO CRYSTALLINE STRUCTURES ARE MORE APPARENT IN THE UPPER WORKINGS. THE EXPLORATION TARGET APPEARS TO BE THE SULFIDES, (?).
