Comments

Comment (Workings): Nine patented, and 65 unpatented, claims, plus two adits

Comment (Location): Mine is said to be at an elevation of 9,900 feet on Alpine Mountain 3/4 mile SSW of Georgetown, (but Leavenworth Mtn is the ridge at that location). Alpine Peak lies SE of Georgetown and if the mine is at 9,900 feet elevation on that peak, it would lie near the common corner of secs. 16,17,20,21, T 4 S, R 74 W, about 3/4 mile SE of Georgetown.

Comment (Production): A small amount ($60,000) of production is reported.
