Unnamed W mine (1), Ocotillo, Imperial Co., California, USA
A former (past producer) W-abrasives (garnet) mine located 9.4 km (5.8 miles) S of Ocotillo. NOTE: MRDS conundrum: calls it a "prospect" but states "past producer."
Mineralization is a W deposit (Deposit model: 42: W skarn) hosted in limestone and schist. The ore is a lens 1.22 meters wide and 19.81 meters long. Ore control was a contact zone.
Workings include a trench and an incline (S80W), at 2.44 meters deep and 18.59 meters long, and 7.62 meters long, respectively.
