A former asbestos occurrence/mine located in sec. 15, T18S, R11E, MDM, 2.6 km (1.6 miles) NW of Goat Mountain (coordinates of record) and 6.4 km (4.0 miles) SW of Sampson Peak (coordinates of record), along the N canyon wall of Clear Creek. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 500 meters.
Local rocks include Lower Cretaceous marine rocks.
Workings include unspecified surface openings (the topo map reflects 1 apparent prospect pit symbol just W of this point and another such symbol about 225 meters SSW of it).
