|Location and accuracy||The only primary reference to these claims is by Brooks (1902), who says that they are about 0.8 mile southwest of the Khayyam Mine (CR129). For this record, the site is in the SW1/4 section 7, T. 76 S., R. 86 E.|
Geologic descriptionBrooks (1902), who did not visit these claims, asserts that the deposits are identical to those at the Khayyam Mine (CR129). He describes them as three parallel veins with chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite. No deposits have since been mentioned at or near these claims. Barrie (1984), who studied the nearby Khayyam Mine, also mapped the likely area of these claims, but apparently did not identify any mineral deposits there. Barrie mapped the rocks in the vicinity as felsic to mafic schist, mostly of volcanic origin, that is part of the Late Proterozoic and Cambrian Wales Group.

|Mineral deposit model||Besshi massive-sulfide deposit? (Cox and Singer, 1986; 24b).|
|Mineral deposit model number||24b?|
|Age of mineralization||There is no modern confirmation of a deposit on these claims. If one exists, it is probably similar to the Late Proterozoic or Cambrian deposit at the nearby Khayyam Mine (CR129).|
|Workings or exploration||No indication of work beyond claims staked prior to 1902. Claims staked intermittently on the Khayyam Mine over the years may have extended to this site.|
|Indication of production||None|
