A former lode Au-Ag mine located in the SW¼ sec. 20, T6N, R26E, MDM, 1.9 km (6,200 feet) WNW of Masonic Mountain (coordinates of record) (NW slope of the mountain), on National Forest land. The Masonic Mines Association owned several claims in the area, including the Chemung Mine. MRDS database stated accuracy for this location is 10 meters.

Mineralization is a vein deposit hosted in granite. Local rocks include pre-Cenozoic metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks undivided.

Workings include surface and underground openings comprised of a 200 foot deep shaft, drifts on the 50, 100 and 200 foot levels, plus some surface prospecting. A mill was erected.

Production information: Large shipments of medium-grade ore and several shipments of high-grade ore, several hundred dollars per ton, were made. No production record found.
