Locality type:


A Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-Zn-Mn-W-Mo (F-Be) mining area located in T17-21S, R7-8E, G&SRM. (protracted in part), located in the Baboquivari and Quinlan Mountains, West of the Arivaca District. Worked by missionaries (with Indian labor) in the early days.

Mineralization is varied: (1) Gold-bearing quartz-fissure veins and stringers, locally with calcite, pyrite, manganese and iron oxides, and spotty molybdenum, cutting metamorphosed or unmetamorphosed Mesozoic and early Tertiary sedimentary formations and usually associated with rhyolite, andesite or pegmatite dikes as well as Laramide granitic to dioritic intrusive bodies; (2) Spotty tungsten mineralization, often with local base metal sulfides, calcium silicates, and quartz along fracture zones in Mesozoic to early Tertiary quartzitic or limy beds adjacent to igneous dikes or intrusives of probable Laramide age; (3) Spotty and irregular manganese oxides in seams and veinlets along narrow fissure zones in shattered and brecciated Laramide intrusive or sedimentary beds; and, (4) Local, spotty gold placers in benches and bars along dry washes.

Workings include numerous small, shallow mines and prospects, but few major producers. Total estimated and recorded production through 1972 is some 56,600 tons of ore containing about 173,500 oz. Ag, 13,900 oz. Au, 122 tons of Cu, and 12 tons of Pb. About 2,500 units of tungsten were also produced from some 1,000 tons of ore. A small amount of low-grade manganese was also produced. Only a small amount of placer gold was recovered.
