A W occurrence located in sec. 9, T5S, R4E, SBM, 12.3 km (7.6 miles) SE of San Jacinto Peak (coordinates of record) and 5.5 miles S of Palm Springs, in Andreas Canyon on property of the Andreas Canyon Club. MRDS database accuracy for this location is not stated. This page constitutes a number of prospects located in 1942 by J. R. Maynard on the ridge between Andreas Canyon and Murray Canyon.

Mineralization is hosted in granitic gneiss, marble and quartzite. The ore body is lenticuloar masses with a thickness of 1.83 meters and a length of 6.1 meters. Foliation dips 30SE. Local rocks include pre-Cenozoic granitic and metamorphic rocks undivided.

Analytical data results: 0.5 to 1% WO3 (from the most promising prospects).
