A Ag-Au-Cu-Pb mining area in the Cerbat Mountains (Cerbat Range) near the Mineral Park Camp.

The Mineral Park district practically joins the Chloride district on the south. Mineral Park, the main camp and post-office, situated near the middle of the district at an elevation of 4,200 feet, is about 4 miles from Chloride. The district trends about north and south, with a length of about 5 miles, which but slightly exceeds its width. It lies mainly in a basin several miles in diameter between the elevations of 4,000 and 5,000 feet. Some of the deposits on the north, however, extend nearly to the top of Cherum Peak, whose elevation is about 7,000 feet. The topography surrounding the basin is mountainous, but for the most part not rugged. The drainage issues westward into Sacramento Valley, mainly through Mineral Park Wash. Open groves of scrub pine and cedar occur in the hills.

The principal supply point is Chloride, but ore and heavy freight are hauled direct to the railroad, 3 miles to the west. The first location made in the district was the Mayflower, in 1870. It was soon followed by the Keystone No. 1 and No. 2, and then by the Lone Star. Considerable ore was soon taken out and shipped to the Selby smelter at San Francisco at a cost for freight of $125 a ton. Some ore was also freighted eastward by oxen over the old government trail to New Mexico.

The Keystone mill, which is still standing, was built at a reported cost of $125,000 and started in 1876. Operations continued more or less actively until the price of silver began to decline in 1882, and during that time the district was one of the heaviest producers and shippers of rich gold and silver ore in the Cerbat Mountains. Since 1882, however, the production has been small, only a few of the mines being worked. One of the reasons seems to be the fact that many of the mines are owned by the original locators or men who have not the means to work them below water level, which in a greater portion of the district is encountered at a comparatively shallow depth. Several springs occur in the district.

The Keystone mill contains a crusher, five 1,000-pound stamps, with pans, a Bruckner revolving reverberatory furnace, and a 25-horsepower engine. In the early days it received most of the ore from the Cerbat Mountain region, including the Chloride, Cerbat, and Stockton Hill camps. The treatment charges are reported to have been very heavy, but, on the other hand, the operators found it difficult to extract the values from the ore.

GEOLOGY: The country rock is the pre-Cambrian complex, and comprises gneisses and schists as well as gneissoid granite. The structure or schistosity strikes a little west of north, with nearly vertical dip. The complex is extensively intruded or broken through by masses of the later, probably post-Carboniferous coarse granite porphyry, and is cut by dikes of rhyolite, diabase, and minette. In the northeastern part of the district, on the slope of the range between Mineral Park and Cherum Peak, the schistosity and sheeting in the pre-Cambrian rocks trend N. 65° E., with vertical dip, and a secondary sheeting trends N. 20° W. and dips about 80° E.

The district on the whole is well mineralized, and its mineralization seems to be largely due to the porphyry. Remote from the intrusive masses this granite porphyry is locally associated with the veins as dikes. It forms the upper part of a prominent foothill or knob on the northwest, known as Niggerhead. It also constitutes a considerable portion of the mountains on the opposite side of the wash, to the south, and extends interruptedly throughout the greater portion of the basin eastward for 1-J miles into the slope of the range. Its structure or jointing, which also penetrates the underlying pre-Cambrian rocks, is well shown across the northern part of Mineral Park district. It dips westward at angles of about 35°.

ORE DEPOSITS.

The deposits contain gold, silver, lead, and copper in fissure veins or lodes, some of which are unusually large. The strike of the veins is N. 37° to 60° W., and the dip is steep to the northeast or the southwest. There are also a few cross veins striking northeast or east and west. The gangue is quartz, with pyrite, chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite, galena, and zinc blende as the principal ore minerals. Especially in the upper levels there are also secondary argentite, native silver, copper, horn silver, and cerusite. The oxidized zone does not extend to a great depth.

The mines, numbering about twenty, are small, few of them exceeding 300 feet in depth or containing more than 1,000 feet of underground work. The principal ones are the Rural, Buckeye, Ark, Queen Bee, Tyler, Keystone, Fairchild, Metallic, Accident, Lady Bug, Standard, and Golden Star. They are nearly all reached by wagon road. The most important producers at present are the Keystone, Tyler, and Queen Bee.
