A former underground Au-Ag-Zn-Pb-Cu-U-V mine located on 6 patented claims in sec. 16 & 21, T.15N., R.9W., Boulder Creek vicinity, a little more than 3 miles north of Bagdad and east of Bozarth Mesa. located March 11, 1887 by John Lawler and B.T. Riggs. Discovered on March 11, 1887 and owned by John Lawler & B.T. Riggs, then sold to H.H. Warner (June, 1890-1904)(Seven Stars Mining Co.); John Lawler (1904- ); Hillside Mines, Inc. (1934-1940); Boulder Mining Co. (1940-1942); State of Arizona (1942-1944); East Vulture Mining Co. (1944-1951).

The deposit is a typical fissure vein in muscovite schist, an important member of the Yavapai schist. The vein has a N.10ºW. strike at the south end and changes to a N.25ºE. strike at the north end. The dip is not uniform but averages between 75º to 80º in a westerly direction. Faulting before and after mineralization has been important. The main vein and several branches occupy a zone of faults antedating the veins, and sufficient movement along the faults occurred after mineralization to form a 3 foot zone of gouge and fault breccia in which unbrecciated vein material is found as irregular veinlets. Branching veins appear on both sides of the main vein and those to the east in general dip west less steeply than the main vein, whereas those on the west side of the main vein are nearly vertical. Small veinlets of sulfide, with or without quartz, fill minor fractures in the Hillside Mica Schist. The main vein averages 2½ feet (75 cm) in width on the upper levels and 4 feet on the 800 & 900 levels.

Four periods of quartz-sulphide deposition have been recognized from the banding and local comb structure. Some intramineralization faulting is indicated by microbrecciation of the sulphides and cementation by later quartz. The common sulphide minerals occur usually in blebs or bunches in quartz.

Strike faults locally cut out the vein and elsewhere repeat it. In other places the vein has been broken so completely as to form only an unrecognizable part of the gouge. After the strike faulting that followed mineralization there were offsets along north-dipping (25º-45º) cross faults. In general these late cross faults have formed clean-cut breaks, and the vein on the hanging wall side of the cross faults has been displaced 1 to 25 feet eastward.

Workings include 7,000 of development work by Lawler (1887-1892), by 1914 there were some 11,000 feet of workings, ultimately over 16,000 feet of workings. The shaft is 765 feet deep to the 1000 level. The vein was worked for 2,400 feet along the strike and stoped almost completely above the 700 level for an average length of 2,000 feet. Production included 58,748 oz. Au, 1,315,264 oz. Ag, 6,503,028 pounds Pb, 3,300,524 pounds Zn and 398,813 pounds of Cu. (to 1951).

Pliocene
2.588 - 5.333 Ma



ID: 3191095
Cenozoic volcanic rocks

Age: Pliocene (2.588 - 5.333 Ma)

Lithology: Volcanic rocks

Calymmian
1400 - 1600 Ma



ID: 2902134
Middle Proterozoic granitic rocks

Age: Calymmian (1400 - 1600 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Oracle Granite; Ruin Granite

Description: Mostly porphyritic biotite granite with large microcline phenocrysts, with local fine-grained border phases and aplite. Associated pegmatite and quartz veins are rare. This unit forms large plutons, including the Oracle Granite, Ruin Granite, granite in the Pinnacle Peak - Carefree area northeast of Phoenix, and several bodies west of Prescott. (1400-1450 Ma)
