The USGS lists this mine as a surface and underground producer, but we were unable to locate any open portals or collars. We found records indicating that this mine has been listed as a past producer with different owners. Underground hard rock mining is dangerous and expensive. It's likely that this mine began as an underground producer, but was converted to a safer, higher yielding surface mine later.
