A former surface and underground Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-REE mine located 2 miles North of Crown King at an altitude of about 7,200 feet. Owned by Ed. Block of Prescott (1934). Claims extend into the SW¼SW¼SE¼ of sec. 24. NOTE: Alternate coordinates provided: 34.2728N, 112.2061W.
Mineralization is considered an extension of the Nelson vein. The vein is 3 to 4 feet wide and is comprised of oxidized matter at the lower tunnel level. The fissure strikes N.40ºE. and dips 70ºW. and is filled with quartz, generally massive, with few small druses and sulfides. The ore body is lenticular. Country rock is black clay-slate striking 30ºE. and dipping steeply E. Ore control was faulting. No alteration was noted. An associated rock unit is the Crazy Basin Quartz Monzonite.
Veins parallel regional foliation, which trends N25E.
Workings include a 230 foot long lower tunnel at about 6,900 feet of altitude
