|Location and accuracy||The Maid of Texas prospect is often described with the adjacent Maid of Mexico Mine. It t is separate vein, however, and at least at some time in the past on separate claim(s). The Maid of Texas vein is parallel to the Maid of Mexico and about 200 feet to the southeast. It is about 0.4 mile south-southeast of the center of section 23, T 61 S, R. 79E. In 1996, a trail was still passable from the center of the north shore of Harvey Lake, north to the nearby Maid of Mexico Mine, but in later years it was difficult to follow in the heavy timber and vegetation. The location of the Maid of Texas is shown on Figure 17 of Still and others (2002). The location is accurate.|
Geologic descriptionThe Maid of Texas vein as located by Still and others (2002) is parallel to and about 200 feet southeast of the Maid of Mexico Mine. It was discovered before 1933 but there has been little work on it and no production from it. There is a small cut on the Maid of Texas vein that now can can be traced as a line of scattered quartz float that trends northeast. in gullies. Still and others (2002) collected three samples that contained up to 8 parts per billion (ppb) and 419 parts per million zinc. Two samples of iron-stained, pyrite-rich schist contained 51 and 61 ppb gold. The vein is at the contact of semischist and phyllite of the Triassic Hyd Group (Brew, 1997).
