Accord Mine (Accord Manganese deposit), Medicine Butte area, Fort Apache Indian Reservation, Gila Co., Arizona, USA

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
A manganese mine located in sec. 25, T5N, R15E, about ¾ mile NW of Medicine Butte. Owned by L.A. Kuehne (1940-1941). Discovered 1941. NOTE: Alternate coordinates provided: 33.8592N, 110.6131W.

Mineralization is 2 nearly north-trending veins dipping 80W, about 300 feet apart. The better mineralized parts range from 1 to 2½ feet (0.76 meter) wide and dip steeply Westward. The East vein can be traced about 400 feet (121.92 meters) along the surface and the West vein is exposed for some 70 feet along strike.

Workings include 3 adits (1957)(East vein) and a 15 foot (4.57 meters) deep shaft plus 2 shallow open cuts on the West vein. No production record.

The Medicine Butte manganese deposits do not represent commercially attractive pproperties due to their relatively small size, remote location, and sophisticated metallurgical procedures for the removal of copper.
