Comments

Comment (Deposit): DOM. REF. INCLUDE THIS WITH PLACER COUNTY MINES, BUT DESCRIPTION OF LOCATION IN 15TH REPT. DOM, SAYING LOC. WEST OF GREENHORN CREEK WOULD PLACE LOCATION IN NEVADA COUNTY; HOWEVER, THIS REFERENCE PROBABLY DERIVED INFORMATION FROM USGS FOLIO 66, P. 7, AND EC. GEOL. SHEET WHICH SHOW A COPPER PROSPECT EAST OF THE GREENHORN CREEK, SOUTH OF POORMAN CREEK, AND ON OR SLIGHTLY WEST OF THE ROAD. THE UNIDENTIFIED SHAFT SHOWN IN NE1/4 NW1/4 OF SEC. 14 ON TOPO MAP MAY BE THIS PROSPECT?
