"The Ouray mining district is located in the area of about 10 to 15 miles around the town of Ouray. Ouray, which was originally Uncompahgre City, was settled around 1875 after a discovery at the Mineral Farm claim." (http://geosurvey.state.co.us/minerals/HistoricMiningDistricts/OurayHMD/Pages/OuraySilverton.aspx)

Ore deposits range from low-grade, contact-metamorphic through pyritic base-metal bodies containing silver and gold tellurides and native gold to silver-bearing lead-zinc deposits.

Contact-metamorphic deposits and most of the pyritic gold-bearing deposits were found in the central parts of the district. The silver-lead-zinc deposits were found chiefly in the northern and southern sectors of the district.
