A former Hg occurrence/mine located in the SE¼ sec. 29, T1N, R1E, MDM, on the upper E side of Mount Diablo (just E of the summit). Discovered in 1863. Operated by the Nevada Scheelite Company (1956). Owned by the Guadelupe Mining Company. The Mount Diablo Mine and the Ryne Mine were consolidated in 1930. Worked 1875-1877 and again briefly in 1930. Last produced in 1953. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 100 meters. Native Americans used the cinnabar in tribal ceremonies. Later the deposit was mined as a placer.

Mineralization is along the contact of a diapir (upthrust plug) of Franciscan sediments and serpentine intruded into sedimentary rocks of the Great Valley sequence. The ore body is irregular and tabular and dips N50E at a thickness of 1.83 meters, a width of 60.96 meters and a length of 39.62 meters. Rhyolite plugs occur nearby. Bituminous clays (Black Alta) also occurs. Local alteration included serpentine converted to silica-carbonate rock. Associated rocks include Late Jurassic-Late Cretaceous rhyolite. Local rocks include Franciscan Complex, unit 1 (Coast Ranges).

Workings include surface and underground openings with a length of 1,219.2 meters and an overall depth of 152.4 meters.

Production statistics: Year: 1962 (period = to 1962): Hg (estimated): ^6 pounds/ton (2,711 grams/metric ton).

Low-grade reserves still exist with 17,000 tons of indicated and inferred reserves.
