This is an operation originally comprised of two separate feldspar prospects with openings. Later taken over by the Consolidated Feldspar Mining Corp. (Manchester: 39). This complex is located about ½ mile (0.8 km) West of the Kinkel quarry. The Baylis property workings were opened by the Kinkel family about 1920. The quarry on the Speranza property was opened in the fall of 1929.
