A former small underground Pb-Cu-Zn-Ag mine located on 12 claims (in 1907), in the SE ¼ sec. 32, T.16S., R.31E, about 5 miles NE of Paradise and ½ mile SW of Harris Mountain.
Mineralization is a contact metamorphic deposit with small stringer orebodies of base metal oxides, carbonates, and sulfides along mineralized stringers in Paleozoic limestone and Cambrian Bolsa Quartzite, cut by intrusive porphyry dikes. Four orebodies are present, 30 feet wide vein with chalcopyrite reported in 1907.
Local structures include a Tertiary volcanic and intruisive event associated with district mineralization.
Workings consist of a 125 foot deep inclined shaft, and a tunnel 300 feet long. A small tonnage of ore was produced in the late 1890's.
