A W-Cu prospect located in sec. 13, T16S, R22E, 3.5 miles S of Johnson. Discovered prior to WWI.

Mineralization is hosted in Horquilla Limestone. The ore is disseminated. Ore control was the contact between the Texas Canyon Quartz Monzonite and the limestone. An associated rock unit is the Texas Canyon Quartz Monzonite. A concentration of scheelite containing an estimated 0.25 to 0.75% WO3 was found on the dump. Only traces of scheelite were seen at surface. Scheelite is disseminated with fluorite in silicified quartz monzonite breccia. Copper stained cracks in breccia and limestone appear to have been the leads followed.

Local structures include Tertiary block faulting trending NNW. Regionally, Late Cretaceous or Early Tertiary N- to NW-trending folds and thrust aults override to the NE.

Workings are 7.62 meters deep.
