Locality type:


The Carnation Mine has been developed on a parallel fissure S of the Emma Mine. It was opened in the spring of 1912 by an inclined shaft 230 feet deep which follows the dip of a N-S fault that cuts the E-W ore fissure. All development at the time of a visit in the 1910s had taken place E of the fault. The ore occurs in irregular shoots between which the fissure shows little mineralization. The ore mined has been of high grade.
