A former underground Cu-Ag-Au-Zn occurrence/mine located in the NW¼ sec. 23, T16N, R2E, G&SRM, 0.5 km (0.3 mile) NNE of Jerome proper. Discovered by J.J. Fisher in 1900. This property consists of a group of 4 claims and lies to the east of the United Verde Mine. Owned by the United Verde Extension Mining Co., more commonly known simply as "U.V.X." Later owned by the Mingus Mountain Mining Corp. Produced during the period 1900 to 1974.

Mineralization is a deposit with an elliptical ore body hosted in the Deception Rhyolite, Grapevine Gulch Formation. Partly leached ore occurs on the 800-foot level; a chalcocite body 5 feet wide on the 1,200 level, 500 feet South of the Edith shaft. A main ore body of chalcocite was found on the 1400 level, 900 feet South of the Edith shaft. This body was 269 feet wide and 440 feet long on this level. This ore body is almost entirely in a rock described as "quartz porphyry." Strong kaolinization was found at the edges of the ore body. Diorite is seen only in a small are on the 1200 level. The predominant rock is a greenstone schist, very similar to other parts of the district. The schistosity is well defined but the rock is not fissile. The "quartz porphyry" is undoubtedly intruded into the greenstone. Ore control was stratigraphy and igneous activity. Ore concentration was hydrothermal with oxidation at near surface. Alteration was chloritization, sericitization, kaolinization, and pyritization.

Area structures include foliation in metavolcanic rocks that trends N10W to N40W. Massive sulphide lenses elongated parallel to bedding occur in the metavolcanic rocks.

Workings include the Edith shaft, the Audrey shaft, and the Little Daisy shaft. The Edith and the Audrey collars are both at 4,908 feet of altitude. The Little Daisy shaft was sunk to 800 feet deep to reach the Precambrian rocks. A winze went below the 800-foot level, where partly leached ore was encountered. The Edith shaft was deepened to 1,400 feet. The principal levels of the Edith and Audrey shafts are at depths of 800, 1200, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, and 1700 feet below the collar of the Little Daisy shaft. A 12,000-foot long drainage tunnel was driven as well. It drains the mine at the 1300 level or 1100 feet below the collar. The total length of workings amounts to more than 10 miles. The square-set method of mining was employed in the heavy ground; the Mitchell method elsewhere.

Production included $600,000 of ore from the 1200 level ore body (period values). During 1917 the main ore body produced 6,991,480 pounds of copper, worth $2,167,358 (period values). During 1916 U.V.X. produced 36,402,972 pounds of copper from 77,461 tons of ore averaging 23.5% Cu, besides 2,570 ounces Au and 128,468 ounces Ag. Total tonnage was 3,878,825 dry tons of ore yielding 793,331,100 pounds of Cu, 6,449,156 ounces Ag, and 152,756 ounces Au. The total output being worth $9,949,918 (period values), of which $7,400,000 was profit!
