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.

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 (Location): UTM IS FOR SAMPLE SITE 3864. UTM FOR SAMPLE SITE 3865 IS N 4339945, E 384300. A SHORT CLIMB UP THE CANYON FROM THE END OF THE ROAD ; INFO FROM LAND.ST :(1972)
Comment (Development): WORKING DATE FROM ABOUT 1977; NO ACTIVITY AT TIME OF EXAMINATION IN 1986
Comment (Workings): SMALL PROSPECTS WITH WOODEN ORE CHUTE
Comment (Deposit): WORKINGS ARE ON A SMALL QUARTZ VEIN IN GRANITE. BELOW THE WORKINGS IS A WOODEN ORE CHUTE DESIGNED TO LOWER THE ORE DOWN A STEEP DRAINAGE TO THE CANYON FLOOR. LOCAL INTRUSIVE FORMS A BOLD SILICIFIED OUTCROP BEARING ROUGHLY NW. SMALLER ANDESITE INTRUSIVES ARE ALSO PRESENT. SAMPLE 3864 WAS CHIPPED FROM THE VEIN OUTCROP. TO THE SE, A VEIN NEAR A RHYOLITE OUTCROP IN GRANITE WAS PROSPECTED ALONG ITS STRIKE. SAMPLE 3865 CHIPPED FROM THIS VEIN CONTAINED SIMILAR LOW VALUES.
