A former Zn-Pb-Cu-Au-Ag-V mine located in sec. 20 & 29, T24S, R58E, MDM, 5.7 km (3.5 miles) W of Goodsprings and ESE of Shenandoah Peak, on Bureau of Land Management land. Discovered in 1889. First production was in 1909. Owned by A. J. Robbins (1922). MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Mineralization is a Pliocene deposit (Mineral occurrence model information:
Model code 72; USGS model code 19a; Deposit model name: Polymetallic replacement; Mark3 model number 47), hosted in dolomite of the Bird Springs Formation. The ore body strikes approximately NW and dips approximately SW at a thickness of 1.52 meters, a width of 12.19 meters, and a length of 274.32 meters. Controls for ore emplacement included the permiability of the formation. The zinc-bearing dolomite breccia is associated with sill-like masses of granite porphyry which intruded the Bird Springs Formation. Local rocks include Limestone and minor amounts of dolomite and shale.

Regional geologic structures include regional overthrusting. Faults in the district tend to make a reticulate pattern. Local structures include folding and faulting.

Workings include underground openings with a length of 152.4 meters and an overall depth of 207.26 meters.

Production data are found in: Hewett (1931).

Assay data results: Year: 1924 (period 1909 - 1924): ^30-42% Zn.
