Structure: Northwest Trending Vein Offset By North Trending Faults.

Alteration: Silicified Andesite

Deposit: Deposits occur As stringers and shoots of ore in a northwest trending fissure vein which ranges from 4 ft. To 6 ft. Wide. In the lower levels of the main shaft the vein widens to about 20 ft. And sulfide mineralization begins to replace oxides. 2 claims, mineral survey number 1098, covering 37.774 acres. Discovery year: 1880's

Geology: For general geology see black range district.

Ore(s): Mineralized Solutions Rose Along Faults And Localized In Fissures And Fractures.
