Stockbridge Valley brown iron ore district deposit. (The names "Hudson Ore Bed Pond" and "Leet Ore Bed Pond" on the USGS topographic map, Stockbridge quadrangle, are switched: The northerly of the two is the Leet Mine, the southerly is the Hudson mine. The Bradley mine appears as a "cove" on the east side of the Leet mine pond.)
