A former surface and underground Pb-Cu-Ag-Au-Zn mine located a little more than 2 miles south of Bagdad and about 1 mile east of the Mountain Spring fault. The first prospecting was done by Mr. Lawrence in the early 1900's. In 1916, C.C. Stukey and Charles Crosby shipped some ore.

Mineralization is a vein deposit hosted in the Hillside Mica Schist. Ore control was faulting and shearing. Ore concentration was oxidation at near surface. No alteration noted. An associated rock unit is the Lawler Peak Granite and quartz monzonite porphyry dikes.

The Stukey vein is a narrow quartz vein, commonly less than 1 foot wide and strikes nearly due north and dips vertically. It cuts across Hillside mica schist and Lawler Peak granite, and is more continuous in the granite, for in the schist it tends to split along the foliation. Generally the Stukey vein and extensions of it can be followed along the strike for about 1 mile. The oxidized zone appears to be about 50 feet deep.

Workings include many small pits along the vein, a prospect adit, a shaft at the south end of the vein, and the main shaft, north of the road. Production was 38,743 pounds Pb, 7 oz. Au, 355 oz. Ag, and 114 pounds Cu.

1600 - 1800 Ma
Early Proterozoic metavolcanic rocks

Age: Statherian (1600 - 1800 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Pinal Schist; Yavapai Supergroup; Tonto Basin Supergroup; Vishnu Schist

Description: Weakly to strongly metamorphosed volcanic rocks. Protoliths include basalt, andesite, dacite, and rhyolite deposited as lava or tuff, related sedimentary rock, and shallow intrusive rock. These rocks, widely exposed in several belts in central Arizona, include metavolcanic rocks in the Yavapai and Tonto Basin supergroups. (1650 to 1800 Ma)

Lithology: Major:{metavolcanic}
