Comment (Production): 25 tons of copper ore assaying 3% Cu, 0.09 oz. Au, and 2.7 oz. Ag, were shipped to American Smelting Co., Garfield, UT, in 1954. "The shipped ore was mine run from old diggings" 9DMEA-3788, p. 16 of 26.)

Comment (Ownership): Unpatented mining claims on public land.

Comment (Workings): "One old drift that goes in at about a 30 degree angle for approx. 12 ft, following a vein of copper ore. This vein is apparently 2 ft. in depth. Then there is a tunnel (cross-cut) of approx. 30 ft. that has not reached the ore bearing vein." (DMEA-3788, p. 16 of 26)
