A Hg mine located in sec 33, T27N, R34E, MDM.
10-15 miles southeast of Lovelock, in the Antelope Springs District. Known for good crystals of cinnabarStructure: Relief Fault (Thrust) N40w ; Reg.Trends: N 40 W Replacement In Ls Occurs Along Fractures Under Shale In Synclinal Axis

Tectonics: Basin And Range

Deposit: Discovered in 1907 but no record of production prior to 1914. The workings consist of about 2,000 ft. Of adits. From 1914 to 1960's mines in district were worked. The deposits are mainly replacement deposits of cinnabar in carbonate and are localized below the carbonate-shale contact between steeply dipping faults. ; info.src : 1 pub lit the deposits are mainly replacement deposits of cinnabar in carbonate and are localized below the carbonate-shale contact between steeply dipping faults. Ore bodies are of two types. In the first type, most of the ore was formed by veinlets and disseminated crystals of cinnabar in a body of crushed limestone lying between two faults. The second type lay in a pipe-like body that was probably a pre-existing lead-zinc ore body. Most of this ore was ruggy and contained much pulverulent cinnabar together with bindheimite and oxidation products which include limonite, cerussite, hemimorphite and sb-oxides. Deposits are folded and faulted into n W trending ridges. South part of area-fanglomerates, north-basalts.

Deposit type: Hot-spring Hg

Development: From 1914 to 1960's mines in the district were worked.

Geology: Ore bodies were of two types. First type-most of the ore was formed by veinlets and disseminated crystals of cinnabar in a body of crushed limestone lying between two faults.
