A former Hg occurrence/mine located 3.6 km (2.2 miles) N of Goat Mountain (coordinates of record) and 4.0 km (2.5 miles) SW of Sampson Peak (coordinates of record), 6.1 km (3.8 miles) NW of Picacho Peak (coordinates of record), and 6.7 km (4.1 miles) WSW of Idria. A member of the Flint group.

NOTE: This locality is not listed in the USGS MRDS database as a stand-alone locality, but rather, it is listed as an alternate name for the Flint group that has claims spread about a rather large area.

Eleven previously unknown mercury minerals have been found at the site.
