A former Hg occurrence/mine located in the NE¼SW¼SE¼ sec. 29, T17S, R12E, MDM, 0.3 km (0.2 mile; 900 feet) SSE of Idria proper, on the S side of the former town, on private land. Discovered in 1853 and in continuous production since, except the period 1921-1922. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 500 - 1,000 meters.

Mineralization is a Hg deposit in hydrothermally indurated beds of the Panoche Formation beneath the New Idria thrust fault and associated tear faults which offset the thrust. Local rocks include Upper Cretaceous marine rocks, unit 1 (Upper Great Valley Sequence) and/or ultramafic rocks, chiefly Mesozoic, unit 3 (Coast Ranges and Western Klamath Mountains).
