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): INFO FROM LAND.ST :(1972)
Comment (Development): EQUIPMENT APPEARS TO DATE FROM THE 1930'S
Comment (Deposit): WORKINGS EXPLORE A VEIN IN A FAULT THAT CUTS ALTERED WHITE TUFFS WHICH ARE LOCALLY CUT BY ANDESITE DIKES. THE INCLINE FOLLOWS THE VEIN DOWN DIP AND IS ABOUT 45 FT DEEP. THE ZONE IS A WHITE PUNKY MASS OF ARGILLICALLY ALTERED BROKEN VOLCANIC ROCK CONTAINING MINOR QUARTZ FRAGMENTS AND LITTLE OR NO VISIBLE MINERALIZATION. SAMPLE 3851 WAS TAKEN FROM THE INCLINE DUMPS AND EXPOSED VEIN.
Comment (Workings): AN INCLINED SHAFT AND PROSPECTS, 3 OF WHICH ARE FAIRLY LARGE
