Location: The Rain Bow prospect is at an elevation of about 1,000 feet on the northwest flank of Williams Hill, southeast of the head of Black Bay. The prospect is 0.4 mile north of the southwest corner of sec. 13, T. 48 S., R. 57 E. It is MAS no. 0021140118 (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002). The location is accurate within about a mile.
Geology: Johnson and Karl (1985) map the rocks in the area of this prospect as Cretaceous melange. The rocks are cut by northwest-striking, high-angle faults; these include the northwest extension of the fault at the Hirst Mine, which controls the mineralization there. Its trace is about a mile southwest of this prospect. The only published information about the prospect is that it is a lode claim staked for an unspecified commodity (U.S. Bureau of Land Management, 2002).
Development Status: Undetermined.
