A former small underground Pb-V-Ag-Au-Cu-Mn-Mo occurrence/mine located on 24 claims in the group (one claim was patented in 1952, the remainder are unpatented, in the SE ¼ sec. 36, T20S, R21E, about 8 miles SW of Tombstone, near the intersection, on state land. Produced 1929-1953. Owned by the Gallagher Vanadium & Rare Metals Corp. Operated by Mr. G. Neil Vogel (1952).

Mineralization is very spotty, generally weak, largely oxidized, lead and copper mineralization with some vanadinite in a silicified and altered shear zone in Tertiary Bronco volcanics. Ore exists on all fracture lanes of fractures and veins in a rhyolite dike. Dike and veins strike NE-SW and dip SE. The veins vary from a few inches to 10 feet and average 4 feet with zones up to 100 feet wide. The ore zone is 1,371.6 meters long, 3.05 meters wide, and 30.48 meters thick.

Workings include shafts to a depth of 73.15 meters. The Bradshaw shaft is 240 feet deep; the Stella shaft is 120 feet deep, an inclined shaft is 5 feet by 9 feet; and other shafts are 30 to 75 feet deep; plus numerous open cuts. Some 670 tons of ore were produced mainly since 1952.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Ypresian - Campanian
47.8 - 83.6 Ma



ID: 2847843
Early Tertiary to Late Cretaceous volcanic rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (47.8 - 83.6 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Williamson Canyon Volcanics

Description: Rhyolite to andesite and closely associated sedimentary and near-surface intrusive rocks; commonly dark gray to dark greenish gray or greenish brown. In the ranges west of Tucson, this unit includes thick welded ash-flow tuffs. Volcanic rocks of this unit are inferred to be derived from vents and volcanoes above magma chambers that solidified to form the granitic rocks of map unit TKg. These rocks are restricted to southeastern Arizona except for a small outcrop near Bagdad. (50-82 Ma)

Comments: Related, broadly, to unit TKg Original map source: Arizona Geological Survey, DI-8 Geologic Map of Arizona, Digital Spatial data for the Geologic Map of Arizona, v. 3.0, edited by S.M. Richard and S.M. Kneale, 2002, 10 p., 2 DOS HD disks. Arc/INFO export file (.e00) format, scale 1:1,000,000.

ID: 3187054
Mesozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cretaceous (66 - 145 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks
