Geology: Little is known about the Bullion prospect; it was only mentioned in passing by Wright and Wright (1905) as a gold prospect and that statement was quoted in Knopf (1912). Wright and Wright mention only that no work had been done on it as of 1904. In view of the uncertainty of its location, little can be said about the host rocks at this prospect. The only other references to it are the U.S. Bureau of Land Management MAS file (2002) that notes only that there was gold lode claim on it, and a table in Bittenbender and others (1999), who indicate it was active in 1900.
Workings: A claim was staked about 1900.
Commodities (Major) - Au
