A former small underground Pb-Cu-Ag-Au mine located in the SE ¼ sec. 32, T.20S., R.22E, approximately 5 miles SW of Tombstone. Produced 1924. Operated by H.W. Asselgren.


Mineralization is oxidized base metal sulfides in a fracture zone cutting Cretaceous Bisbee Formation sedimentary beds.

Local structures include the Bisbee Group, which, in the area strikes N-S and dips 10W. It has a more uniform dip near the Arlington Mine than in the main part of the Tombstone District.

Workings include a shaft(s). About 110 tons of ore were produced in 1924.
