Historic lease with the main lode in a belt of white silky micaeous schist, hematite-phyllite, quartz conglomerate and quartzite, outcropping for 1000 feet. The quartz reef lode contains small quantities of malachite, and grains of chalcocite, across a vein 6 inches thick. Minute gold and minor silver is also found. A shaft had been sunk to a depth of 50 feet.
