Comments

Comment (Production): PRODUCTION 1901 TO 1927 ESTIMATED TO BE 6 MILLION DOLLARS, PRODUCTION 1912 TO 1927 PARTLY FROM LEASEES.

Comment (Development): CONSOLIDATED INTO BULLION COALITION IN 1910, CONSISTED OF 77 CLAIMS AND FRACTIONS, TAKEN OVER IN 1924 BY COMBINED METALS REDUCTION CO. ON AN OPTION

Comment (Location): INFO FROM LAND.ST :1977

Comment (Workings): THE LENGTH OF WORKINGS WAS 1932 AND IS EXCLUSIVE OF STOBES. THE INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS WERE ORIGINALLY WORKED FROM INCLINES. A DRAIN TUNNEL WAS DRIVEN 600 FEET BELOW THE MOUTH OF THE HONERINE INCLINE AS A DRAINAGE TUNNEL (600 LEVEL). AFTER THE CONSOLIDATION A NEW DRAIN TUNNEL WAS DRIEN 13,000 FT. FROM BAUER AND INTERSECTED THE MINE ON THE 1200 LEVEL. WINZES HAD BEEN DRIVEN TO THE 1600 FT. LEVEL BY 1932 INSPITE OF 1,500 TO 1900 GALLONS PER MINUTE DISCHARGE OF WATER

Comment (Deposit): MAJOR ORE BODIES AT INTERSECTION OF BEDDING (N 70 TO 75 W, 60 TO 75 NE) AND FAULTS AND FISSURES (N 10 TO 30 E, 45 TO 60 W).
