A former small underground Zn-Pb-Ag-Cu-Au mine located in East-central sec. 3, T24S, R16E (protracted), near the Annie Mine, W of Washington Gulch. Produced 1900-1951. Owned at times, or in part, by the Duquesne Mining & Reduction Co.; and the Queen Mining Co.

Mineralization is sulfides, partly oxidized near the surface, in a pyrometasomatic lens in Permian Naco Group limestone at the edge of a strong garnet zone.

Workings include shaft operations. Worked sporadically from the earl 1900's through 1951. Total production would be a few hundred tons of ore averaging about 10% Pb, 5% Zn, 4% Cu, 4 oz. Ag/T, and minor Au.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Ypresian - Campanian
47.8 - 83.6 Ma



ID: 2766847
Early Tertiary to Late Cretaceous granitic rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (47.8 - 83.6 Ma)

Description: Porphyritic to equigranular granite to diorite emplaced during the Laramide orogeny. Larger plutons are characteristically medium-grained, biotite +/- hornblende granodiorite to granite. Smaller, shallow-level intrusions are typically porphyritic. Most of the large copper deposits in Arizona are associated with porphyritic granitic rocks of this unit, and are thus named 'porphyry copper deposits'. (50-82 Ma)

Comments: Laramide metaluminous; associated with porphyry Cu deposits

Lithology: Major:{granite,granodiorite,diorite}
