A former Au mine located in the SE¼ (projected) sec. 33, T38N, R8W, MDM, 0.9 km (2,800 feet) NW of Coffee Creek Ranch, along Crystal Creek, a small tributary of Coffee Creek (0.2 miles E of the Coffee Creek Guard Station), on NAtional Forest land. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 1,000 meters.

Mineralization is a Au occurrence. The geology is similar to that of the Golden Jubilee Mine. Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 5 (Klamath Mountains).

Workings include underground openings. A 150 foot adit, of which 75 feet was on vein, was driven on the Katherine claim. A 75 foot adit was driven on the Josephine claim with a 25 foot deep winze.

Rich ore was taken from the winze on the Josephine claim. Some good ore was milled from the KAtherine claim. No production record was found.
