A feldspar-silica occurrence/quarry located in the NE¼NW¼NE¼ sec. 31, T4S, R2W, SBM, 2.4 km (1.5 miles/8,200 feet) SE of Nuevo, in the Lakeview Mountains. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Mineralization is a granodiorite pegmatite worked for clear massive quartz during WW2. Still occasionally worked for lapidary material, mainly asteriated rose quartz and asteriated smoky quartz. Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks , unit 2 (Peninsular Ranges).

Workings include unspecified surface openings (the topo map reflects 1 open cast mine symbol labeled "mine" at this point).
