An asbestos occurrence/prospect located mostly in Navajo County, but also partly in Gila Co. NOTE: The USGS and MAS-MILS files cited pertain to the overall deposit and treats it as if it is entirely in Gila County.

Mineralization is in a 10- to 20-foot thick bed of massive, even-bedded algal limestone in which a serpentine zone has developed, 5 to 10 feet above a concordant diabase sill. Within the serpentine zone, thin veinlets of soft, weak fiber up to 1½ inches long are separated by dull, white partings of waste.

Workings include bulldozer cuts.

Production: No known production of fiber from this prospect.
