A former large output underground Cu-Pb-Zn-Ag-Au (Bi) mine located in the East-central sec. 15 (center SE¼NE¼ sec. 17 ?), T.23S., R.24E. (Bisbee 7.5 minute topo map), about 1½ miles west of Lowell, on private property. Discovered 1905. Produced 1909-1973. Owned at times, or in part, by the Denn-Arizona Copper Co., Shattuck-Denn Mining Co., and the Phelps Dodge Corp. Operated by Mr. James Maffee at one time.

Mineralization is a replacement deposit of mostly oxidized and enriched copper carbonates, oxides, and sulfides, lead, and zinc ores in irregular, often pipe-like, replacement bodies in a wide range of Paleozoic limestones (Lower Naco, Devonian Martin, & Escabrosa Limestones) Martin Limestone along the Czar fault in association with porphyry dikes and sills clustered around a leached silica core. The ore zone is composed of 4 or 5 parallel fault zones, it is as wide as it is long (length = 60.96 meters), and is confined to the trough made by the Shattuck and Wolverine Granite Porphyry dikes. This trough plunges NE and its bottom becomes a sill. An associated rock unit is the Sacramento Hill Stock. Ore control was nearby dikes and sills, and faulting with its associated brecciation. Ore concentration included bornite replacing pyrite. Alteration is gossan with Mn and Fe oxides induced by hydrothermal metamorphism.

Local structures include common pre-mineralization faulting and tilting. Main fault directions are N10W to N40E, and S30W to N50W.

Workings include a shaft(s) to a depth of 1,840 meters and shallow surface workings. This mine produced some 3 million or more tons of copper and lead-zinc ore from 1906 to 1947 and some manganese oxide in 1917-1918. Over 18,000,000 tons of ore were produced overall.
