A former Au-Ag mine located in the NE¼SW¼ sec. 22, T22N, R20E, WM, on the the west side of Squillchuck Creek.

It worked veins, veinlets, stockworks, and disseminated mineralization in breccia in an unnamed sandstone unit and the overlying Chumstick Formation. Orebodies extended from the surface to more than 900'.

This mine began production in the mid 1980's and ceased production in 1994.

Note: This mine has been sealed and reclaimed.
