A former Pb-Zn occurrence/mine located in the NE¼SE¼SW¼ sec. 11, T35S, R23E, 6th. Principal Meridian, on private land (fee ownership). Discovered in 1920. First produced in 1922. Owned by the heirs of Hannah E. Wright (100%), Kansas (1976). MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 100 meters. Toward the end of the Tri-State District's life this mine was operated as a fee-dig site by Chink Enders.

The ore body is 6 meters thick, 300 meters wide, 600 meters long and with a depth-to-top of 95 meters (minimum of 88 meters). Ore body No. 1 is breccia fill. Ore body No. 2 is tabular & disseminated. Ore body No. 3 is a hydrothermal replacement deposit. The primary ore control was fracturing. The secondary control was a contact zone. Wallrock alteration is intense (silicification; dolomitization). The average thickness of unconsolidated material is 5 meters. Local rocks include rocks of the Cherokee Group (Phanerozoic/Paleozoic/Carboniferous Pennsylvanian - Early [Desmoinesian]; gray to brown sandstone and sandy shale with minor limestone and about 10 commercially important coal beds. Total approximate thickness ranging from 350 feet to 500 feet in outcrop).

Workings include unspecified underground openings.
