Comments

Comment (Commodity): Limited data in short, undated report: no record of production, reserves, or samples assayed.

Comment (Location): Adit lies on south side of Clear Creek, just west of Idaho Springs and near the Stanley Mine, on or near the line between secs. 34-35, T 3 S, R 73 W. (It's probably the unamed adit on an unamed vein between the Jumbo and Lafayette veins in USGS B1208.)

Comment (Workings): Five patented claims, with 820-ft adit, and 5 prospect holes.
