A former lode Au mine located in the S½NE¼ sec. 16, and in secs. 15, 21 & 22, T6N, R26E, MDM, 0.6 km (1,900 feet) ESE of New York Hill, on private (patented) land in a National Forst area. Property consists of 4 patented claims. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 100 meters.

Mineralization is a Au deposit comprised of 5 parallel veins hosted in schist. The ore body is irregular in shape, strikes N25W and dips 70 to 90NE. Horses, or blocks of barren ore, composed of granite, are common in the mineralized zone. Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges).

Workings include underground openings comprised of a 172 foot deep shaft, 2 tunnels cutting the vein(s) at depths of 271 feet and 413 feet. Total underground workings aggregate 6,000 feet. For a detailed description of the workings, including sketches, see Eakle & McLaughlin (1917), p. 163.

Production information: This mine was reported to have produced $700,000.00 of Au (period values).

Analytical data results: Assays average $20/ton of Au (period values). Some Au ore ran as high as $300/ton (period values).

Besides the minerals listed here that were identified (with semi-quantitative SEM) during their work, Vikre et al. (2015) found numerous phases with Cu, Se, Te, Bi, etc. that were not identified; some of these may be mixtures.
