Golden Bell claims, Puerto Blanco Mts, Pima Co., Arizona, USA

‡Ref.: Wilson, E.D., Cunningham, J.B., and Butler, G.M. (1934), Arizona Lode Gold Mines and Gold Mining (revised 1967), Arizona Bureau of Mines Bull. 137: 181.

A group of gold claims located about 6 miles West of Dripping Spring and about 30 miles South of Ajo.

This area forms part of a schist pediment at the western foot of the mountain range.

Mineralization is gold-bearing quartz veins. The vein exposures, which are more or less interrupted by later gravels, appear along an eastward-trending belt about a mile in length. At the western margin the vein is vertical and consists of dense, shiny white quartz, somewhat iron-stained and brecciated near the walls. About a mile father East, the exposures are from one to two feet wide and have been somewhat offset by cross-faulting. Here the schist walls of the veins are considerably sericitized and silicified.

Workings include a few shallow shafts.
