Au-Pb-Cu-Ba occurrence/prospect located at UTM: 749,440 meters E., 3,977,060 meters N, on the W side of Hualapai Wash, N of White Elephant Wash.

Mineralization is a series of pods and stringers of quartz veins emplaced along what appears to be a N80W-striking and 35-50N-dipping shear zone. An early quartz-carbonate-pyrite-galena-chalcopyrite-gold assemblage in the veins has been brecciated and cut by subsequent seams of white calcite, limonite, and barite. Bladed groups of thin barite crystals fill vugs from which carbonate has been leached. Considerable free gold found along pyritic seams in large quartz blocks on the easternmost dump along these workings. Galena and chalcopyrite are also abundant. Country rock consists of an altered granitic gneiss sequence within the gneiss unit.
