A former underground Cu mine comprised of 7 claims located adjacent to the Cleopatra property on the SE. Owned by the Calumet-Jerome Copper Co.; and, the Phelps Dodge Corp.

Mineralization is a replacement deposit hosted in greenstone schist (Deception Rhyolite). Ore control was stratigraphy and igneous activity. Ore concentration was oxidation at near surface. Alteration included chloritization and sericitization.

Area structures include massive sulfide lenses elongate parallel to bedding in metavolcanic rocks. Foliation in metavolcanic rocks trends N10W to N40W.

Workings include a 600 foot deep, vertical shaft on the Remington claim plus several tunnel workings: crosscut - 1,800 feet West from the 600 foot level, mainly in greenstone schist. Total underground workings comprise about 7,000 feet
