A former Pb-Ag occurrence/mine located on private land.

In 1870 the mine was operated by the Carroll County Lead and Zinc Mining Company. Twenty-two men were employed at that time, eleven above ground and eleven below ground. (Fogg, 1874)

The mine operated intermittently until 1918.

Hydrothermal fault breccia deposit mined for lead, silver, zinc and iron. The mine opened in 1826 when the area was a part of the town of Eaton, and so older references call it the Eaton lead mine. Madison became a separate town in 1852.


Local rocks include rocks of the Littleton Formation, undivided.
