Crown Point No. 6 claim (Crown Point claim), Pinto Creek, Top of the World, Miami-Inspiration District, Globe-Miami District, Gila Co., Arizona, USA

A Cu-Pb-V-Mo occurrence/claim located in the SE¼SE¼ sec. 25 and in the NE¼NE¼ sec. 36, T1N, R13E, on the west side of Pinto Creek about ½ mile north of the Carlota Mine and about 2 miles N of Top of the World, near the Pinal County line in the Inspiration quadrangle, on National Forest land.

Mineralization is a linear ore body hosted in Precambrian Pinal Schist. The ore zone is 18.29 meters long, strikes N60E and dips 50SE. Associated rock units are the Schultze Granite, dacite and diabase.

The southern half of the claim covers a small outcrop of diabase. A fault along the east side of the outcrop brings the diabase into contact with the Pinal schist of a thrust plate overlying diabase and Whitetail conglomerate. On the north, west, and south sides, the diabase is overlapped by dacite.

A small fracture, which has been slightly mineralized for about 60 feet along the strike, crops out in the diabase. The mineralized fracture strikes N.60ºE. and dips 50ºSE. The meager vein matter, which is a replacement of the diabase wall rock, consists of quartz, cerussite, wulfenite, and vanadinite. Some of the cerussite surrounds small kernels of galena.
