Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 34° 22' 45'' North , 113° 24' 47'' West
Latitude & Longitude (decimal): 34.37917,-113.41306

A former underground Zn-Au-Cu-Bi-Au-Pb-Ag-pyrite mine located in sec. 3, T17N, R16W. Started in 1879.

Alternate coordinates provided: 34.37890; -113.41330; or 34.88580; -113.96640; or 34.86670; -113.86670 (sic).

A roughly tabular massive sulfide deposit. It strikes N.20º to 30ºE. along a 2,000 foot strike length and dips about 70º NW. Folding deformed the body into 'ore shoots' that rake N.50º at the North end and rake Southward at the South end. The deposit lies within the quartzofeldspatic schist unit and in close association with amphibolite lenses, cordierite-anthophyllite pods, talc-actinolite pods and ferruginous chert lenses.

Workings include over 6,600 feet (2,200 meters) of drifts on 8 levels, a 650 foot (200 meter) deep inclined shaft. Production was some 78,251 tons of Cu-Zn sulfide ore.
