A former lode Au-Ag-Pb-Fe occurrence/mine located in sec. 7, T15N, R10E, SBM, about 8 km NW (topo map)(3.5 miles WNW ? - MRDS file) of Halloran Springs, N of Cree Camp. The property is comprised of 15 claims. This mine was active in the mid-1930's. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Mineralization is hosted in quartz monzonite. The ore body strikes NE and dips SE at a thickness of 0.91 meter. The veins are 2 to 3 feet thick and dip steeply. They are 50 feet apart near the main shaft but 1,000 feet N of the shaft they intersect. Free gold occurs in hematite. Local alteration includes oxidation. Local rocks include Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges).

Workings include surface and underground openings with a length of 609.6 meters and an overall depth of 54.86 meters and comprised of open cuts and prospect adits for 2,000 feet along strike plus a 180 foot shaft. Some exploratory work was accomplished in 1951.

Production data are found in: Goodwin, Joseph Grant (1957).
