A former medium output underground Cu-Pb-Zn-Au-Ag mine located in the SW ¼ sec. 9, T.23S., R.24E. (Bisbee 7.5 minute topo map), on the S edge of Bisbee, on private land. Owned by the Phelps Dodge Corp.

Mineralization is mostly oxidized and enriched copper, lead and zinc ores in irregular replacement bodies in Devonian Martin Limestone along the Czar fault in association with porphyry dikes and sills and clustered around a leached silica core. Ore control was nearby dikes and sills, and faulting and associated brecciation. Ore concentration was bornite replacing pyrite. In the silica, gold was both mechanically and chemically concentrated during leaching. Alteration was 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 are underground openings. Several hundred thousand tons of copper and lead carbonate ore were produced in the late 1800's and in the 1900's. Production statistics were included under the Copper Queen Branch of Phelps Dodge in USBM-ABGMT file data.

Cretaceous
66 - 145 Ma



ID: 3187054
Mesozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cretaceous (66 - 145 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Serpukhovian - Early Cambrian
323.2 - 541 Ma



ID: 2847902
Mississippian, Devonian, and Cambrian sedimentary rocks

Age: Paleozoic (323.2 - 541 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Tapeats Sandstone; Bright Angel Shale; Muav Limestone; Temple Butte Formation; Redwall Limestone; Bolsa Quartzite; Abrigo Formation; Martin Formation; Escabrosa Limestone

Description: Brown to dark gray sandstone grades upward into green and gray shale, overlain by light to medium gray or tan limestone and dolostone. This unit includes the Tapeats Sandstone, Bright Angel Shale, Muav Limestone, Temple Butte Formation and Redwall Limestone in northern Arizona, and the Bolsa Quartzite, Abrigo Formation, Martin Formation, and Escabrosa Limestone in southern Arizona. These rocks record intermittent sea-level rise and inundation in early Paleozoic time. (330-540 Ma)
