A surface V-Mo-Fe prospect (The McHur was a V prospect in 1917), possibly located in the SE¼ sec. 21, T4S, R15E, on federal land. The exact location is no longer known. It is assumed to be on the property of the 79 Mine.

Mineralization is a vein deposit hosted in Naco Limestone and Toronado Limestone. Ore control was irregular masses of gossan-like material. An associated rock unit is quartz latite.

Workings are shallow openings at intervals.
