A former lode Ag-Pb-Cu-Au-Ba [baryte] occurrence/mine located on the eastern slopes of Godiva Mountain.

Mineralization

Mineralization is a replacement deposit hosted in rocks of the Humbug Formation (Deseret Limestone). The ore in the mine was largely oxidized, although there were small amounts of galena discovered. The gangue minerals consisted of quartz and baryte. There was copper present as enargite, as well as other oxidized minerals (more than likely conichalcite and other arsenates). Gold was present in small amounts in the oxidized minerals. The tunnel intersects the limestone of the Humbug formation, as well as the light blue Pine Canyon limestone and sandstone.

Geologic structures

Local structures include the Pine Canyon Fault (NE), and beds that strike N and dip 45E.

Workings

The Utah Consolidated Mine is worked along the Godiva ore channel. The mine is opened by a single tunnel, which has its portal at an altitude of 7,318 feet. There were no explorations at depth (known) so the mine workings only consist of the single tunnel. Very little work has been done to survey the property, so not much more is known about it other than what is found in literature.
