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.
Elevation: 5,098 Feet (1,554 Meters)

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 2589, 2590

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: ABOUT WWI
Comment (Deposit): E-W TO NE-TRENDING FAULT ZONES IN GABBRO. SILICIFIED LENSES ALONG FAULT, UP TO 1M WIDE. GABBRO IS BRECCIATED, SILICIFIED, PYRITIZED AND BLEACHED ALONG FAULT LENSES CONTAIN PYRITE, JAMESONITE, AND ARSENOPYRITE, WITH JAMESONITE LARGELY ALTERED TO BIND HEIMITE. RELICT PODS OF SULFIDE ARE SURROUNDED BY OXIDES. MOST OF THE ORE MINED HERE MUST HAVE BEEN OXIDE.
Comment (Workings): OPEN PITS ALONG FAULT; OLD ADIT
