A former surface specimen and abrasive (garnet) mine located in sec. 36, T4S, R19E, N of Stanley Butte on the S slope of Quartzite Mountain about 10 miles SE of Coolidge Dam.

Mineralization is andradite garnet which occurs with other silicate minerals in a zone of metamorphosed Paleozoic limestone near a granitic intrusive of Laramide age.
