|Location and accuracy||This gold placer mine is on Grace Gulch, a southeast headwater tributary to Buster Creek (NM304). The map location is on the south side of Grace Gulch at an approximate elevation of 325 feet and just inside the east-central edge of section 23, T. 10 S., R. 33 W., Kateel River Meridian. It is locality 116 of Cobb (1972 [MF 463], 1978 [OFR 78-93]).|
Geologic descriptionSmall-scale placer mining in 1902 and 1903 recovered about 60 ounces of gold from a bench along Grace Gulch (Collier and others, 1908). This bench is a possible continuation of the one mined on the south side of lower Buster Creek (NM304). A northeast-trending high-angle fault juxtaposes marble and schist units near this site (Hummel, 1962 [MF 247]).
