A former underground Ag-Au-Pb-Cu-Zn mine located about ½ mile SSW of the Silver Belt Mine, on the NE slopes of the Bradshaw Mountains. Discovered about 1919 and operated 1922-1923. Owned by F.M. Anderson & Co. (Oct 1915-Jun 1923); Double O Metals Co. (Oct 1928-Feb 1931).

Mineralization is a vein deposit that strikes N.20ºE. and dips 70ºW with a tabular ore body hosted in the Lower Unit Spud Mountain Volcanics, and ranges in width from a few inches to several feet. Country rock is blocky amphibolite and some massive, fine-grained diorite. Ore control was faultuing and shearing. Concentration processes were oxidation and enrichment at near surface. No alteration noted.

Workings include a shaft 230 feet deep and another about 520 feet deep; a winze on the bottom level is 185 feet deep. Lateral workings existed on 7 levels extending off the shaft.

Regional Geology

This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys. This does not necessarily represent the complete geology at this locality but it gives a background for the region in which it is found.

Pliocene
2.588 - 5.333 Ma



ID: 3191095
Cenozoic volcanic rocks

Age: Pliocene (2.588 - 5.333 Ma)

Lithology: Volcanic rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Statherian
1600 - 1800 Ma



ID: 2781106
Early Proterozoic metavolcanic rocks

Age: Statherian (1600 - 1800 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Pinal Schist; Yavapai Supergroup; Tonto Basin Supergroup; Vishnu Schist

Description: Weakly to strongly metamorphosed volcanic rocks. Protoliths include basalt, andesite, dacite, and rhyolite deposited as lava or tuff, related sedimentary rock, and shallow intrusive rock. These rocks, widely exposed in several belts in central Arizona, include metavolcanic rocks in the Yavapai and Tonto Basin supergroups. (1650 to 1800 Ma)

Paleoproterozoic
1600 - 2500 Ma



ID: 2644681
Andesitic basalt breccia

Age: Proterozoic (1600 - 2500 Ma)

Description: Fine- to medium-grained, metamorphosed basaltic andesite matrix and angular clasts of andesite and more felsic volcanic rocks (Anderson and Blacet, 1972b). Exposed in large mass from Spud Mountain on the north to Big Bug Mesa on the south. Flows within breccia are largely calc-alkalic to calcic basaltic andesite that is sodic to average in K/Na ratio and very Fe rich. Breccia fragments within flows also are basaltic andesite that range from alkali-calcic to calcic and that are very sodic to sodic and very Fe rich. All these flows, except those that are high Ti, have chondrite-normalized REE patterns that have slight LREE enrichment and little to no Eu anomalies (Vance, 1989; this study)
