A former small surface Au-Ag-Cu mine located in the north of center sec. 23, T24S, R20E, 0.8 miles south of Coronado Peak, near the border with Mexico. Produced 1915. Operated by P.W. Davidson.
Mineralization is a vein deposit hosted in the Glance Conglomerate. Ore control was proximity to, or inclusion in, an exotic block of Paleozoic sediments, in andesitic lava within the Glance Conglomerate.
A minor deposit with no specific references found.

|Jurassic sedimentary and volcanic rocks|
Age: Jurassic (145 - 170.3 Ma)
Description: Sandstone and conglomerate derived from volcanic rocks with associated intermediate-composition lava flows, breccias, and tuffs. In southern Arizona this unit includes rocks of the Artesa sequence, Pitoikam Formation, Mulberry Wash volcanics, Rudolfo Red Beds, Recreation Red Beds, and Gardner Canyon Formation. In western Arizona it includes the Harquar Formation, rocks of Slumgullion, and related(?) unnamed units in the Kofa and Middle Mountains. This unit is characterized by maroon, brown, and purplish-gray volcanic-lithic sandstone and siltstone, with subordinate to abundant conglomerate, quartz-rich sandstone and sparse limestone. (150-170 Ma)
