A former small underground Cu-Pb-Au-Ag-Silica mine group located in secs. 25 & 36 area, T.22S., R23E. (Bisbee 7.5 minute topo map), approximately 2½ miles NW of Bisbee, on private land. Operated by the Juniper-Flats Gold Mining Co.

Mineralization is spotty and generally weak, oxidized and siliceous copper, lead, gold, and silver ores in irregular quartz veins in Jurassic granite.

Workings are shallow. Some 600 tons of ore were produced, mainly as smelter flux, by the group in 1914-1918, 1926, 1938, and 1941.

Jurassic granitic rocks

Age: Jurassic (145 - 182.7 Ma)

Description: Granite to diorite, locally foliated and locally alkalic; includes Triassic(?) granitoids in the Trigo Mountains. This unit includes two dominant assemblages of igneous rocks. The Kitt Peak-Trigo Peaks superunit includes, from oldest to youngest: dark, foliated or gneissic diorite, medium-grained equigranular to porphyritic granodiorite, and small, irregular intrusions of light-colored, fine-grained granite. The Ko Vaya superunit, limited to south-central Arizona, includes texturally heterogeneous K-feldspar-rich granitic rocks. (150-180 Ma)
