A former surface and underground Cu-Ag-Au-Pb-Zn-Mo-Ti-Rhodium mine located in the center of sec. 4, T.14N., R.9W. (Bagdad 15 minute topo map), on 8 claims on Copper Creek. Owned by the Bagdad Copper Corp. Discovered 1882. First produced 1906. Claims also in sections 5, 9 & 10, T14N, R9W; and, in sections 6 & 7, T14N, R9W; and, in sections 1, 10-14, T14N, R10W; and, sections 34-36, T15N, R10W.

Mineralization is 'porphyry copper' deposit with a blanket orebody hosted in the Brindle Formation. Ore control, where the largest quantity and highest grade ore occurs, is where intersecting or closely spaced faults have increased permeability. Mineralized fractures have attitudes (from most to least common) of N70E, 70N; N20E, 75W; N40W, 90. Ore concentration was hypogene metallization and supergene enrichment to copper ores, oxidation. Alteration included sericitization and argillization.

Area structures include the fracturing of the stock at Bagdad, important to this porphyry deposit, appears to be the result of the intersection of dike swarms.

Workings included a 465 foot deep, 3-compartment shaft. Production to 1951 was 125,991,174 pounds of Cu plus 85 oz. Au and 292,969 oz. Ag, and 85, 826 pounds of Mo.
