A former underground Au-Ag occurrence/mine located in sec. 14, T27N, R20W, G&SRM, on private land. Produced to 1909.
Mineralization is a vein deposit hosted in Pliocene rhyolite and andesite. The ore body strikes EW and dips 60W with an average vein width of 3 feet (0.91 meter). Controls for ore emplacement included influence by brecciated fault zones. Local rocks include Early Proterozoic granitic rocks.
The Daisy mine is located northeast of the Prince Albert mine, of which it is almost a continuation, in a flat of Grand Army Wash, where the converging- Prince Albert veins seem to unite in a sag in the slope of the hill, with the Norma and the African situated just to the east. The vein strikes about east and west and is developed to a reported depth of 500 feet by shafts and other workings, which incline at angles of about 45° with the vein. There is a large dump of highly oxidized material. The production is said to be large and came in part from a very rich $300,000 ore shoot.
Workings include underground openings with an overall depth of 152.4 meters.
