A former underground Ag-Pb-Cu-Au-Zn mine located about ½-1 mile east of the Peck Mine (1st. Mine South from the Prince Mine). Discovered in 1874 by T.N. Alexander, W. Cole, E.G. Peck, and C.C. Bean. Later [?] rediscovered [?] and owned by Messrs. Houghteling & Curtin. Owned at times, or in part, by Messrs Smith, Buttrick & Co. Produced 1876-1976 overall. Reopened in 1910 and closed in 1915. Main production period was 1907-1940. Also owned at some time and operated by Index Mining Ltd. Also known as: Silver Prince General No. 86 Patented claim; Black Warrior MS 419 Patented claim. Claims extend into the E½SE¼SW¼ and the SE¼SE¼NE¼ of sec. 25, the N½N½N½ sec. 36, T11N, R1W, and into W½W½W½ of sec. 30, T11N, R1E.

Mineralization is a vein deposit with a tabular ore body hosted in Yavapai Schist, mostly fissile and sericitic, with lenses of quartzite. Outcrops are deeply oxidized. The vein strikes due north and dips 60ºW., with the schist. The vein is at most a few feet wide and carries dark brown, limonitic ore. Ore control was faulting and shearing. Ore concentration was oxidation and enrichment of near-surface ore. No alteration noted. An associated rock unit is rhyolite dikes.

Workings include shafts (125 feet deep), drifts and tunnels. Workings include several shafts and drifts plus a tunnel nearly 400 feet long. The shaft is 400 feet deep. Production was some $40,000 of Ag (1883)(period values), and 600,000 oz. Ag (1910-1915). Production was $480,000 of silver (1875-1908)(period values). Ore assayed at 113 oz. Ag/T.

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.

Quaternary - Miocene
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary 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: 2758115
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: 2642760
Andesitic flows

Age: Proterozoic (1600 - 2500 Ma)

Description: Fine- to medium-grained, metamorphosed andesite and minor andesitic basalt and dacite containing altered phenocrysts of feldspar. Exposed in zones 2, 4, and 5 in Bradshaw Mountains and in zone 6 in Black Hills and Dugas areas. Body along Slate Creek (zone 2) contains some breccia fragments. Andesitic rocks along Little Copper Creek and near Potato Patch included in andesitic basalt (unit Xab). Body in zone 4B that extends from Iron King mine on the north to Little Bug Mesa on the south is predominantly calc-alkalic to alkali-calcic andesite that is very sodic and Fe rich to very Fe rich. Alkali-calcic basaltic andesite is interbedded with the andesite. Included with this normal andesite are flows of high-Ti andesite to lati-andesite that are enriched in REE and form chon­drite-normalized patterns that slope gently down from the LREE to the heavy rare-earth-element (HREE) and that have minor to no negative Eu anomalies (Vance, 1989; this study). A large area of andesite flows, tuffs, and interbedded chert and iron-formation crops out from Mayer to Crown King in zone 4C. Andesite from near the Swastika mine is representative of the flows, which are calc-alkalic, very sodic, and very Fe rich. Smaller areas of andesite are found east of Cordes to Mayer in zone 5A. In the Black Hills (zone 6A), andesites are noted as bombs within tuffaceous rocks in Grapevine Gulch Formation along Yaeger Canyon (Vance, 1989). Bombs are calc-alkalic, very sodic to sodic, and very Fe rich. The Shea Basalt (Anderson and Creasey, 1967), which crops out south of Jerome in zone 6B, is a distinctive high-Ti andesite to lati-andesite that is alkali-calcic to calc-alkalic. The Shea, which is very sodic and very Fe rich, is cut by gabbro sills and dikes too small to be shown at map scale. Limited data from altered samples of dikes and sills suggest an alkalic syenogabbro to syenodioritic composition that is Mg rich. Gabbros of this composition are unknown from Early Proterozoic rocks (units Xgb, Xlgb, Xdi) in map area, but are present in Middle Proterozoic gabbro (unit Ygb). A genetic relationship of the Shea to the gabbro bodies is possible, but unproven at present. Along Squaw Creek Canyon and to the south, along Verde River (zone 6A), calc-alkalic to alkali-calcic andesite is exposed that is sodic to very potassic and average to Fe rich

Comments: Early Proterozoic plutonic rocks are widely exposed throughout map area. In order to aid in the discussion of these rocks, the exposures of plutonic and metavolcanic rocks are divided into six zones (zones 1–6, from west to east). These zones are roughly parallel to regional foliation and contain rock units that are similar to one another. The zones are not crustal blocks nor are they necessarily separated from one another by discrete tectonic structures
