A former small underground Pb-Au-Cu-V-Mo-Ag occurrence/mine located in the NE¼ sec. 36, T20S, R21E (Fairbank 7.5 minute topo map), GSRM, 1 mile NE of Charleston and 9 miles SW of Tombstone, on the Tombstone-Charleston Road, adjoining the Gallagher properties about 1 mile from the Charleston railroad siding, on private land. Owned by Mr. Ray Kress, Tombstone, Arizona (1952). Operated by Mr. Neil C. Vogel, Tombstone, Arizona (1952).

Mineralization is a vein deposit that includes oxidized copper minerals. The ore zone strikes N40E and dips 75SE.

Local structures include a volcanic area with local intrusion of Cretaceous Uncle Sam Porphyry.

Workings include a 200 feet of open cuts, an old 400 foot deep (121.92 meter) shaft, and an 80 foot deep shaft sunk in 1950. Some production. Little possibility of finding ore of economic grade (3/1943). This property adjoins the Gallagher prospect.

The mine is within the San Pedro Conservation Riparian boundary and any mineral collecting is strictly prohibited.

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.

ID: 2847843
Early Tertiary to Late Cretaceous volcanic rocks

Age: Phanerozoic (47.8 - 83.6 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Williamson Canyon Volcanics

Description: Rhyolite to andesite and closely associated sedimentary and near-surface intrusive rocks; commonly dark gray to dark greenish gray or greenish brown. In the ranges west of Tucson, this unit includes thick welded ash-flow tuffs. Volcanic rocks of this unit are inferred to be derived from vents and volcanoes above magma chambers that solidified to form the granitic rocks of map unit TKg. These rocks are restricted to southeastern Arizona except for a small outcrop near Bagdad. (50-82 Ma)
