A former Cu-Au-Pb-Zn-W-V-Ag occurrence/mine located in secs. 15, 16 & 22, T11N, R18E, SBM, 2.5 km (1.5 miles) WNW of Signal Hill (coordinates of record) and 2.5 km (1.5 miles) SSE of Billie Mountain (coordinates of record), about 9 miles N of Goffs, on wilderness land (Mojave Preserve). MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters. Now in the Mohave Preserve, collecting is prohibited.

Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges) and/or Precambrian rocks, undivided, unit 2 (Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges).

Workings include unspecified underground openings.

About 40 tons of V concentrates were produced during WWI.

Reserve resource information: V resources probably nil.
