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: St. Regis No. 2 Claim
Land ownership: National Forest
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): 1000 FT EAST OF ST. REGIS NO. 1 (RECORD NO. M054875)
Comment (Commodity): NO CINNABAR FOUND AT THIS SITE.
Comment (Deposit): TRENCHING BY USBM (1954) EXPOSED A MANGAINIFEROUS BODY LOCALIZED ALONG AN ALTERED BASALT-RED LIMESTONE CONTACT. MANGANESE MINERALIZATION IS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME AS AT ST. REGIS NO. 1 PLUS HAUSMANNITE. TO DETERMINE THE DOWNWARD EXTENT OF THE SURFACE EXPOSURE USBM DIAMOND DRILLED TWO BOREHOLES. THE FIRST HOLE WAS COLLARED IN THE SOUTHSIDE OF THE TRENCH ABOUT 25 FT NW OF THE OUTCROP. THE WAS DIRECTED SO AS TO INTERSECT HORIZONTAL EXTENSIONS OF THE ORE BODY 32 FT FROM THE OUTCORP. A RED LIMESTONE-BASALT CONTACT WAS INTERSECTED AND NO MANGANESE MINERALIZATION WAS FOUND IN THE 45 FT HOLE. THE SECOND HOLE WAS COLLAARED IN THE FLOOR OF THE TRENCH A T THE BASE OF THE HIGH-WALL ABOUT 31 FT SE OF THE OUTCORP. THE PROPOSED POINT OF INTERSECTON WITH VERTICAL EXTENSIONS OF THE ORE BODY WAS AT A DEPTH OF 40 FT. A RED LIMESTONE-BASALT CONTACT WAS OBSERVED IN THE CORE. NO MANGANESE MINERALIZATION WAS FOUND IN THE 66 FT HOE.
