A former small surface and underground Au-Pb-Ag-Cu mine located in the NW ¼ sec. 12, T.19S., R.15E., 4¼ miles SSE of Helvetia. Discovered 1895. Closed 1932. Operated by D. Holliday (1932).

Mineralization is partially oxidized sulfides with free gold in a honey-combed, limonite-stained, quartz vein bordering a Laramide quartz latite dike cutting Precambrian granodiorite. The ore body is 0.3 meters wide.

Workings are a shallow shaft and open cut. Worked prior to 1900 and in 1932, producing a small tonnage of high-grade Au ore with minor Pb, Ag & Cu.
