A high angle North-South structure in volcanoclastic rocks south of the Devil's Corral and extending across the Humboldt-Pershing county common boundary contains a fossilized hot spring system. There are numerous cavities,the largest of which reach several meters in length, that contain calcite crystals up to 45 cm. There are many well formed 'butterfly' and 'fishtail' twins with more common scalenohedrons. Late stage gypsum forms coatings on some crystals and, rarely, small ram's horn forms.

When last examined in 2010 this occurrence was within an area of active development by the Hycroft mine operators.
