Radium Mine (Mercer Mine), Coyote Canyon, Crash-up Mountain area, Globe Hills, Globe Hills District, Globe-Miami District, Gila Co., Arizona, USA
A former underground Cu-Pb-Ag-Au-V-Mn mine located on 60 claims, adjoining the Old Blue Bird; Little Tom and New Translation claims added in 1922, in the N½ sec. 35, T2N, R15E, Coyote Canyon about 1¾ miles W of Crash-up Mountain, about 2 miles NW of Ramboz Peak, 2½ miles NE of Burch, on private land. Produced 1907-1933. Owned by the Radium Mines Co. (1913-1916). Owned by Mr. W. H. Mercer (1933).
Mineralization is a deposit in ENE-trending shear zones (faulted diabase). The ore zone is 6437.2 meters long. The deposit is probably associated with Early Tertiary, post-diabase faulting and intrusion period although the only outcrop of Early Tertiary Schultze Granite is at the Old Dominion Mine, 4 miles S.
Area structures include two parallel faults, trending ENE, one near the bottom of the canyon and none further NE. East of the mine there is a non-mineralized fault with a NW strike. NE-trending faults and isolated remnants of the Pioneer Formation with an orientation of predominantly NW with 20-40 SW dip also present.
Workings include a tunnel.
