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.

Comment (Geology): THE HIGHLY SILICEOUS OXIDIZED ORE AND BARREN STRIPPED MATERIAL REMAIN ON DORMANT LEACH PADS AND ON WASTE PILES NEAR THE PITS. BOTH ROCKTYPES ARE ESSENTIALLY NON-REACTIVE AND BECAUSE OF THE SPARSE RAINFALL, WILL PROBABLY NOT GENERATE HARMFUL COMPOUNDS.
Comment (Ownership): THE 1990 AMERICAN MINES HANDBOOK, P83, SHOW CORAL GOLD CORP AS OWNER, NOT CORAL RESOURCES INC. AS OWNER OF THIS PROPERTY. AMAX CAN EARN UP TO 70% INTEREST BY INVESTING IN EXPLORATION OF THIS PROPERTY.
