A former surface and underground Au-Pb-Ag mine located near Tonopah.

Mineralization is a vein deposit with pod-like ore bodies. Host rock is unnamed gneiss & schist.

Field observations: There are two areas of workings. The lower workings are comprised of a shallow vertical shaft (estimated 30 feet) with several adits and holes hollowed out of the banks of the wash. The second area is on a nearby hill and has a deep vertical shaft, substantial shaft-sinking waste rock dumps and an outcrop of a mineralized vein. Nearby this latter area, until recently, were a complex of apparent water tanks, now demolished. Apparently the entire complex is considered the "Moon Anchor Mine."

Quaternary - Miocene
0 - 23.03 Ma



ID: 3185380
Cenozoic sedimentary rocks

Age: Cenozoic (0 - 23.03 Ma)

Lithology: Sedimentary rocks

Reference: Chorlton, L.B. Generalized geology of the world: bedrock domains and major faults in GIS format: a small-scale world geology map with an extended geological attribute database. doi: 10.4095/223767. Geological Survey of Canada, Open File 5529. [154]

Tortonian - Bartonian

ID: 2837858
Middle Miocene to Oligocene volcanic rocks

Age: Cenozoic (7.246 - 41.3 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Peach Springs Tuff; Apache Leap Tuff

Description: Lava, tuff, fine-grained intrusive rock, and diverse pyroclastic rocks. These compositionally variable volcanic rocks include basalt, andesite, dacite, and rhyolite. Thick felsic volcanic sequences form prominent cliffs and range fronts in the Black (Mohave County), Superstition, Kofa, Eagletail, Galiuro, and Chiricahua Mountains. This unit includes regionally extensive ash-flow tuffs, such as the Peach Springs tuff of northwestern Arizona and the Apache Leap tuff east of Phoenix. Most volcanic rocks are 20-30 Ma in southeastern Arizona and 15 to 25 Ma in central and western Arizona, but this unit includes some late Eocene rocks near the New Mexico border in east-central Arizona. (11-38 Ma)
