A Mn occurrence/prospect located on the West edge, T10N, R17E, G&SRM, 10.3 km (6.4 miles) SE of Turkey Springs, near the confluence of Buckskin Canyon (Creek) with Carrizo Creek, 3.1 miles NE of Pryce Lake. The USGS MRDS stated accuracy for this location is 100 meters. NOTE: MRDS file #10027179 presents MRDS file #10161682 as a second file pertaining to this locality; however, it pertains to another locality (a sand & gravel pit).

Mineralization is a Mn deposit in a zone 2 to 3 feet wide consisting of narrow veins/irregular seams of Mn oxides hosted in Late Permian Limestone near the base of the Kaibab Formation. local rocks include Permian to Pennsylvanian sedimentary rocks.

Workings include underground openings comprised of a 30 foot (10 meters) long adit.

Permian to Pennsylvanian sedimentary rocks

Age: Paleozoic (272.95 - 315.2 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Hermit Formation; Supai Group; Schnebly Hill Formation; Naco Group

Description: Interbedded sandstone, shale, and limestone usually characterized by ledgy outcrops. Orange to reddish sandstone forms cliffs near Sedona. This unit includes Supai Group and Hermit Shale in northern Arizona and Naco Group in southern Arizona. It was deposited in coastal-plain to shallow-marine settings during time of variable and changing sea level. Rocks of this map unit in southern Arizona may be in part equivalent to Permian rocks of map unit P in central and northern Arizona. (280-310 Ma)
