A former small surface and underground W-Au-Ag-Pb-Cu-Zn (Te) mine located on 9 patented and 5 unpatented claims on the crest of the range (7,000 feet of altitude), at the head of Carr Canyon, in the SW¼ sec. 14 & East-central sec. 15, T23S, R20E (Miller Peak 7.5 minute topo map), S of Carr Canyon and about 12 miles W of Hereford. Discovered 1895. Produced 1875, 1916-1918, 1934-1942, 1953-1954, 1956. Reopened during WWI. Owned at times, or in part, by the Primos Chemical Co., Tungsten Reef Mines Co. (1918- ); and, the Exposed Reef Tungsten Co. ( -1918).

Mineralization is irregular and sporadic bunches and disseminations of scheelite with some gold and silver values and weak, base metal sulfides along fractures and at joint intersections in a quartz blanket at the base of the Cambrian Abrigo Limestone. Also includes oxidized copper minerals.

Cambrian Bolsa Quartzite and Abrigo Limestone have been weakly deformed by a series of thrust drag folds of gentle northwestward plunge and broken by fractures of NW- and northward trends.

Quartz veins lie near the base of the Abrigo formation & in general dip conformably in the flexed strata. There are two principal veins from a few feet to 12 feet apart. The lower vein ranges from less than 1 foot to 6 feet and the upper from about 2 feet to 15 feet thick. Coarsely crystalline grayish-white quartz and minerals comprise the vein filling.

Workings include numerous trenches, pits and open stopes and a few adit workings. Minor gold-silver production in the early 1900's and a total of several thousand tons of tungsten ore and concentrates produced in 1916-1918, 1934-1942, and 1955-1956 periods.
