Structure: Mcanulty (1978) Indkated That The Prospect Was Near The Southern Rim Of The Resurgentorgan Mtn. Caldera. N 15 E Fault

Tectonics: Basin And Range

Deposit: Sparse fluorite occurs in veins up to 15 inches across for a strike length of 60 ft. The fluorite is pale green and dense; one exposure of a vug displayed medium-sized cubes of fluorite intergrown with crystalline calcite, quartz, and some barite.

Development: Prospect consists of three unpatented claims.

Geology: The mineralized vein occurs in limestone

Ore(s): Faults Provided Channelways For Solutions, Which Deposited Fluorite At A Limestone Horizon.
