Location and Description: The North Star Mine is a Cu-Pb-Ag-Au occurrence/mine located in sec. 30, T10S, R2W, SLM, 1.3 km (0.8 mile) SSW of Mammoth Peak (coordinates of record), on the lower S slope of Mammoth Peak, in the middle branch of Dragon Canyon, ½ mile E of Diamond Pass, and a ¼ mile N of the Dragon Mine, at an altitude of 6,920 feet. The mine closed around 1900, and has been inaccessible since 1911, although it is unknown if it can currently be accessed. The USGS MRDS database states that it was discovered in 1885 and last produced in 1945. It is on private land owned by the Anaconda Company, New York, N.Y. This mine was the richest Au producer in its part of the main Tintic District.

Geology: The ore deposits were contained in the Fish Haven Dolomite and Ajax Dolomite - Opohonga and Ajax limestones where they were metamorphosed, and the contact is also close to the shaft. The crystallized areas of the contact contained quartz, garnet, and wollastonite. The limestone is intersected by fissures, with principal ones trending north, and north 25° east, along with many easterly cross fissures. Associated rocks include Oligocene-Late Ordovician monzonite of the Silver City Stock. The tunnel intersects the main monzonite contact not far from the portal. A porphyry dike 100 feet wide is intersected 400 feet west of the shaft. On the surface an ore bearing fissure was traced for 1,500 feet and it begins at the gulch above the shaft, and continues south to the crest of a nearby ridge. It trends southwest toward the contact and is vertical. The same fissure was discovered on the 300 and 400 foot levels, but no valuable ore bodies were discovered along it. Local alteration includes argillization and contact metasomatism.

Ore: Principal ore bodies extended east of the shaft for 1,000 feet continually, and followed steep north-northeasterly fissures with local offsets on easterly breaks. The ore bodies were irregular, and varied in width from being a small seam, up to 30 feet wide. The stoped ore bodies did not extend very far below the 300 foot level, or more than 500 feet south-southwest, and north-northeast of the shaft.

The ore contained gangue minerals of quartz and baryte, with the ore minerals being galena, cerussite, and enargite along with its alteration products. The ore contained silver and unusually large quantities of gold, more than most other mines in the district. The lower levels contained greater amounts of lead and silver with less baryte than the upper levels. The gold was mainly associated with fine grained baryte. On the upper levels the baryte is coarse and crystallized. The ore shoots dipped west and pitched north. Three of these ore shoots were distinctly gold rich, with one of them carrying lead and silver. Copper ore was also found at the south end of the vein.

Workings: The workings include surface and underground openings with a length of 457.2 meters and an overall depth of 152.4 meters, and are comprised of a shaft and adit and a large open stope tending NE that is visible above the dump. The mine was worked on the southernmost extension of the Godiva ore channel, within 500 feet of a nearby limestone-monzonite contact where it ends. The mine was worked on 6 levels developed at 100 foot intervals. A 900 foot tunnel opens the mine around the 200 foot level (level 2) from a gulch west of the shaft, the tunnel being at 6,745 feet in altitude. The workings extend 500 feet north-northeast, and 700 feet south-southwest. On the 300 foot level a crosscut extended east under the veins worked by the nearby Dragon Mine, and drifts extend far north and south. On the 600 foot level there was a lot of prospecting with large crosscuts running east and west.

Production: Total production for the mine was about $700,000 (period values in 1919) of this total, 60% was in Au, and the rest in Ag, Pb & Cu. This total also represents the net production, not accounting in dividends, which are unknown.

Production statistics: Year: 1957 (period = to 1957) (accurate): grade: ^Averaged 0.1 ounce Au, 5.2 ounces Ag, 3.3% Cu & 1.4% Pb per ton. Recovery percentages: Ag = 147 grams/metric ton; Au = 3 grams/metric ton; Cu = 3 weight percent; Pb = 1 weight percent. Comments on the production information: $420,000 (period values) in Au and $280,000 (period values) in Ag+Pb+Cu.

Note: bodieite was discovered in a dump located ~0.2 km W from the mine.
