‡Ref.: Theodore, T.G., et al (1987), USGS PP 1361: 7, 163 (Table 11).

A Au-Cu-Fe mine located in the NW¼ sec. 1, T.28N., R.19W, G&SRM, 4.8 km (3.0 miles) ENE of Senator Mountain (coordinates of record).

Mineralization is a narrow fault zone that parallels the gneiossic layering in its hanging wall. There is a slight discordance of the fault plane with the attitude of the layering in the footwall gneiss. Amphibolite and biotite gneiss are the principal rock types in the mine area, but at least one 0.6 meter-thick bed of laminated iron formation crops out at several points SW and W of the main shaft. Calc-silicate rock is cut locally by quartzose veins or pegmatitic alaskite. The veins include fine-grained, granular quartz, iron carbonate, specularite, pyriote, and secondary copper minerals. Sericitization is intense and widespread.

Underground workings total approximately 100 meters.
