Mineralization is comprised of relatively weak base metal carbonates and sulfides with some high grade spots along a shear zone and as disseminations in metamorphosed Permian limestones and Cretaceous beds. Host rock units include the Naco group, Colina Limestone and Concha and Colina Formations.

Local structures include sediments tilted and metamorphosed with a strike of NW.

Workings are relatively shallow shafts and short tunnels. The deepest shaft is 80 feet deep; the longest tunnel is a 450 foot crosscut a small amount of ore was produced during 1926 and 1927.
