A former Ag-Cu-Au-Pb occurrence/mine located in sec. 30, T6N, R18E, and in sec. 25, T6N, R17E, SBM, 5.6 km (3.5 miles) ENE of Carbonate Peak (coordinates of record), along Colton Wash, on the E margin of the Old Woman Mountains. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Mineralization is a vein deposit hosted in granite. The ore body is lenticular in form, strikes N65W, dips 85N at a thickness of 1.22 meters, width of 22.86 meters and a length of 30.48 meters. A quartz vein accompanies a porphyritic dike in granite. Lenses are found on either wall of the dike. Local rocks include Precambrian granitic rocks, unit 1 (Eastern Mojave Desert) and/or Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges).

Workings include underground openings with a length of 387.1 meters and an overall depth of 86.87 meters and comprised of a 50p0 foot crosscut tunnel driven N and connected to the surface by a 200 foot shaft, now inaccessible. A drift was driven W for 200 feet and ad rift E was driven for 150 feet. An 85 foot deep winze was sunk at the intersection of the crosscut and the drifts. 150 feet W of the crosscut a winze was sunk to a depth of 35 feet. A 100 foot raise was driven 165 feet W of the crosscut.

Production data are found in: Tucker, W.B. (1930): 215.

$35,000 (period values) of selected ores were reported to have run 200 to 400 ounces Ag/ton, $3 to $4 (period values) Au/ton, 5% Cu an d 5% Pb (1911 to 1930).
