Locality type:


A group of pegmatite dikes & claims yielding Be-Ag-Bi and located in the NE¼ sec. 26, T17N, R14W, G&SRM, 2.9 km (1.8 miles) ESE of Diamond Joe Peak (coordinates of record), along Deluge Wash, on Bureau of Land Management administered land. Owned by Alma Snyder, Arizona (1959). The USGS MRDS database stated accuracy for this locality is 100 meters.

Mineralization is a group of dikes, 150 feet long, 1 inch (2.5 cm) to 2 feet (60 cm) wide, 5 feet (150 cm) deep, in granite. Mineralization includes silver minerals. Local rocks include Pliocene to middle Miocene deposits.

Workings include surface openings comprised of sidehill cuts.
