A former underground Au-Ag-Fe mine located in the NE¼SW¼SE¼ sec. 1, T10N, R17W, on land of unknown status. Owned by Craig & Baldwin (1930).

Mineralization is finely divided particles of gold in irregular streaks and small, discontinuous pockets of brecciated to pulverized sugary quartz with abundant iron oxide and sericite in a brecciated zone in siliceous Paleozoic or Precambrian schistose quartzite.

Workings include shaft and tunnel operations. This mine was known as early as the early 1900's but was worked mainly in the 1930's. Total production could be as much as 100 tons of ore averaging about 1 oz. Au/T and 0.2 oz. Ag/T.
