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.

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 (Deposit): Discovery Year: EARLY1900'S?
Comment (Location): ABOUT 1 MILE SOUTH OF THE ROSEBUD MINE WHERE THE ROAD TO THE ROSEBUD MINE FORKS OFF ROSEBUD CANYON ROAD. ; INFO FROM LAND.ST :(1972)
Comment (Development): NO ACTIVITY AT TIME OF EXAMINATION IN 1984
Comment (Deposit): VEIN FAULT IN MAIN ADIT BEARS ALMOST EW, SUNK IN RHYOLITE. SAMPLE 1800 WAS TAKEN FROM VEIN WITHIN LARGE LOWER ADIT ABOUT 50 FT FROM THE ENTRANCE. VEIN VARIES IN WIDTH AND STRIKE, BUT IS CLOSE TO VERTICAL. IT IS VERY PUNKY EXCEPT FOR AREAS OF SILICIFICATION, WITH OTHER AREAS VUGGY AND BRECCIATED.
Comment (Workings): ADITS AND SHAFTS ON WEST SIDE OF MOUTH OF ROSEBUD CANYON. SURFACE BUILDINGS ARE FALLING DOWN.
