A surface and underground Zn-Pb-Ag-Cu-Sb-Cd prospect located in the central-E sec. 21, T17S, R31E, GSRM, on National Forest land. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

A calcite vein pinches and swells from 1/2 to 2-1/2 feet thick and has a strike of N40W and a vertical dip. It has abundant disseminated galena, pyrite, malachite, tetrahedrite, and chrysocolla. The country rock is massive, gray limestone. Two select samples had 23.1 and 11.2 Oz/ST Ag; 1.2 and O.5% Cu; O.7 and 1.1% Pb; 0.4 and 1.0% Zn; 0.33 and 0.26 Sb; and greater than 100 PPM Cd.

Main working is a shaft, 150-200 feet deep judging from the size of the dump. The adjacent trench is 30 X 8 X 20 feet deep, 15 feet decline. This mine may have had a small production, no records.
