Boleite/Diaboleite from California

I'm wondering if any collectors who have material from the Reward mine in Inyo county, California have noticed a mineral that looks similar to Boleite or Diaboleite on some specimens? I have a few pieces but have not had them tested yet.

I believe Rick Kennedy has significant experience with that locality. Perhaps he would know.

There are caledonite/linarite pseudomorphs after galena. Not sure about any boleite, but would not be out of the question in the chemical environment there.

Cheers from NorCal, John
