Locality type:


This is a Au-Ag-Cu=Pb-Zn mining area located on the NE slopes of the Bradshaw Mountains, East of Lynx Creek and about 12 miles from Prescott. It lies at between 4,500 feet and 7,000 feet of altitude.

The regional rocks are Yavapai schist intruded by diorite, granodiorite, granite and dikes of rhyolite-porphyry in places.

Production equals $17,000,000, of which $4,000,000 was gold (1901-1931)(period prices).
