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: 4,551 Feet (1,387 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.

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): WEST SIDE OF CHALK MOUNTAIN ; INFO FROM LAND.ST :(1972)
Comment (Workings): SHAFTS, ADITS, AND PROSPECT; FAIRLY SHALLOW AND MOSTLY CAVED
Comment (Development): CLAIMS LOCATED AT VARIOUS TIMES FROM 1964 TO 1974, AU ASSESSMENT WORK CURRENT, AS OF 1986.
Comment (Deposit): WORKINGS ARE ALONG IRREGULAR GOSSAN-LIKE HIGHLY IRON-STAINED FISSURES IN LIMESTONE. THE VEINS ARE COMMONLY POROUS AND HIGHLY OXIDIZED WITH LITTLE VISIBLE MINERALIZATION. THE LIMESTONE ZONE FORMS AN E-W TREND BISECTING CHALK MOUNTAIN, AND EXCEPT FOR A MINOR FELSITE CONTACT ON THE WEST END, IT IS IN CONTINUOUS CONTACT WITH TRIASSIC DOLOMITE OVER ITS ENTIRE EXPOSED MARGIN. SOME OF THE EXPOSED VEINS ARE ALONG THE MARGIN OF THE CONTACT ZONE.
