A former small underground Pb-Ag-Au mine located in the NE ¼ sec. 11, T.20S., R.22E, ½ mile S of Tombstone, on private land. Situated 500 feet SW of the Toughnut and Girard shafts.

Mineralization is oxidized, argentiferous and auriferous lead ores in Cretaceous Bisbee Group beds, controlled by the intersection of fissures and anticlinal rolls. The main fissure trends NE.

Local structures include the Tombstone Basin with beds tilted NNE after mineralization.

Workings include a shaft(s). One shaft with 8 levels of workings. The main workings are linear along a NE-trending fissure. Several tens of thousands of tons of ore were produced, mainly in the late 1880's and early 1900's. Post-1900 production statistics were included under the Tombstone group in ABGMT-USBM file data.
