A former small underground Pb-Zn-Ag-Cu-scrap mica-clay (As) mine on 12 claims (as of 1943), located in the North-central sec. 36, T.20S., R.21E. Produced 1944-1961. Operated at times, or in part, by Mary Jo Woolret; the Tombstone Gold and Silver Mines, Inc.; Charleston Lead Mines Co. and the Tombstone Mica Co.
Mineralization is a vein deposit with base metal sulfides, oxidized near the surface, in a strongly altered zone along a fault fissure cutting Tertiary Bronco volcanics.
Workings include a shaft(s) totaling 115.82 meters long and 33.53 meters deep. A few thousand tons of lead-zinc ore were produced in the 1930's and 1940's. Some clay and scrap mica were produced more recently.
