A group of Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn-Au-Bi-V-Mo claims and former lode mine located in the SE¼ sec. 2, T13N, R7E, SBM, 14.3 km (8.9 miles) NW of Zzyzx and about 6 miles N of interstate highway 15 and 12.3 km (7.7 miles) W of Baker, on Bureau of Land Management-administered land. It is accessed off the Zzyzx Road offramp of Interstate 15. The Zzyzx Road off-ramp is 6.4 miles southeast of Baker, California. NOTE: MRDS file #10034014 places the locality in sec. 27, T14N, R7E, SBM.

NOTE: Coordinates are for the adit 1A/parking area of the complex. Taken by Steve Stuart, Jan. 2012.

NOTE: Not to be confused with the "Blue Bell Mine" near Baker (http://www.mindat.org/loc-3543.html) which - apparently - only produced corundum.

Mineralization is a lenticular ore body hosted in granite and limestone. The ore minerals occur in a carbonate gangue. Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges).

Workings include underground openings consisting of a 48-foot deep shaft and several irregular adits connected by irregular stopes.

Production included the shipment of complex ore to Selby in 1949 and 1951. Average recovery was 7.5% Pb, 0.95% Cu, 5.31 ounces Ag per ton, plus some Au. Assays show Cu up to 4.5%.
