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.

Mineral Deposit Model
Comment (Commodity): A 1979 field examination and sample analyses indicated anomalous, but low grade, beryllium concentrations. (Sunshine files, 1979
Comment (Geology): Beryllium occurs in pegmatites, veins, and granite and greisen bodies on the south and SW slopes of Mount Antero. To date, these deposits are of interest only to gem and mineral collectors.
Comment (Location): Prospect is high (13,800 ft) on the south ridge of Mount Antero, mostly in the SE/4 sec. 13, T 51 N, R 6 E.
