A Pb-Cu-Mo-Gold (?) occurrence/prospects located in the NE¼ sec. 25, T28N, R19W, G&SRM, 1.3 km (0.8 mile) NW of Cyclopic.

Mineralization is a major splay of detachment fault zone containing red-brown gouge and comminuted monzogranite cuts through the prospects. A minor fault strikes N10-15E, and dips approximately 40ºW; it is possibly parallel to the main fault system. Quartz-carbonate-pyrite veins and recemented quartz breccia of the Cyclopic type occur in the gouge zone. Approximately 150 to 300 meters SE of this locality, Vein quartz is brecciated and widely scattered in the gouge as blocks 0.6 meters long and approximately 0.3 meters thick. Veins contain sulfides, iron carbonate, secondary copper minerals. Red, brown, and black iron and manganese (?) oxides are relatively abundant.

Workings include surface openings comprised of numerous prospects, pits and trenches in the lower gouge zone.
