A former small surface and underground Pb-Ag-Au-Cu-Zn-V-Mo mine located center of E, sec. 16 & sec. 15, T16S, R4E. Produced 1932-1934 & 1940-1941. Operators included Wayne Mine Co., Dunn, and the Mildren Mining Co.

Mineralization is a vein deposit with ore in pods and lenses. The ore body strikes N25W and dips 75NE. Ore control was brecciated qartz fissure veins. Alteration was oxidation and leaching of wall rock.

Workings included shafts and pits.

Jurassic sedimentary and volcanic rocks

Age: Jurassic (145 - 170.3 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Gardner Canyon Formation; Rudolfo Redbeds; Recreation Red Beds; Topawa Group; Harquar Formation

Description: Sandstone and conglomerate derived from volcanic rocks with associated intermediate-composition lava flows, breccias, and tuffs. In southern Arizona this unit includes rocks of the Artesa sequence, Pitoikam Formation, Mulberry Wash volcanics, Rudolfo Red Beds, Recreation Red Beds, and Gardner Canyon Formation. In western Arizona it includes the Harquar Formation, rocks of Slumgullion, and related(?) unnamed units in the Kofa and Middle Mountains. This unit is characterized by maroon, brown, and purplish-gray volcanic-lithic sandstone and siltstone, with subordinate to abundant conglomerate, quartz-rich sandstone and sparse limestone. (150-170 Ma)
