Reportedly one of the larger producers of gold, silver, nickel and cobalt, more than 25,000 tons of ore have been attributed to this large operation. It lies almost at the end of the road before you get to the Gila River, and extensive excavations include a large 2-acre leveled staging area for equipment within a few hundred feet of the mine. The roads are in fairly good shape the access the mine, but there are a few spots that are fairly steep and narrow, so good clearance and good tire tread is recommended. The main mine consists of a large shaft cut to a depth of 25 feet with two horizontal adits/workings consisting of more than 2,800 feet in length heading northeast and southwest at the 25-foot level. Both adit entrances are largely blocked by natural erosion, but would take more than a few hours of work to reopen and explore. There are extensive tailings onsite as well as a large wash that runs past the base of the tailings, which we would also recommending working. The old head frame and a reported cabin are long gone, but the mine is cut only a few feet from the road, so you will be able to work this one fairly easily. Buyer will receive the following with their completed transaction: - Quitclaim deed showing full ownership of the claim. This will be stamped, recorded and verified with the County and the BLM offices. - Welcome packet with all of the rules and regulations as they relate to the State and BLM where the claim is located. - Educational documents to annually renew your mining claim with the BLM. - A CD of all of the documented images of the claim including maps of the site. - Map of claim marked and GPS coordinates. - Multiple maps showing claim location and surrounding areas for access.

The district includes all of the mines and prospect pits within five miles to the east and south of Bullard Peak. Mining began in the district in 1881 with the discovery of the unique gold-silver-nickel-cobalt deposit at the Alhambra mine (Gilleman and Whitebread, 1956). Subsequent prospecting soon discovered additional deposits. Mining continued until 1893, when a decline in silver price and depletion of rich silver ore caused the mines to close. During 1917, the Black Hawk mine was dewatered, but recorded production numbers varied by report. In 1920, pitchblende (uraninite) was recognized in the mine dumps of the area, andi n 1949 the area became of interest as a possible source of uranium, gold, silver, nickel, and cobalt. Types of deposits found in the Black Hawk mining district include: Laramide veins, tungsten placer deposits, and pegmatites. Total metal production from 1881-1960 is estimated as 3,000 lbs Cu, 1,000 oz Au, 1,286,000 oz Ag, and 4,000 lbs Pb. In addition, 10,542 short tons of (2.7-71 % WO,) tungsten ore (Richter and Lawrence, 1983; Dale and McJGnney, 1959) and 615 short tons of fluorspar ore have been produced (Williams, 1966; McAnulty, 1978). Geology The oldest rocks in the Black Hawk mining district belong to the Proterozoic Bullard Peak Group, which includes quartzite, amphibolite, migmatite and various types of schist and gneiss (Hewitt, 1959; Gillerman, 1964). Intruding these rocks is Proterozoic quartz diorite gneiss, which is the predominant rock in the area and part of the Burro Mountain batholith that crops out extensively to the south and southwest of the area (Gillerman, 1964). The gneiss, which contains 35 ppm Co and 23 ppm Ni (Gerwe and Norman, 1985), is in turn intruded by Tertiary Twin Peaks monzonite porphyry and other rock types. The Twin Peaks monzonite stock also occurs as dikes and irregular masses in the northern portion of the district (Gillerman, 1964). This monzonite contains approximately 20 ppm Co and 11 ppm Ni (Gerwe andNorman, 1985), is Late Cretaceous age (72.5 +- 4.7 Ma; Hedlund, 1985a), and is associated with the mineralized veins. A whole-rock sample of altered material adjacent to a vein has an age date of 65.3 +- 1.2 Ma (K-Ar; Gerwe, 1986). Metamorphic and igneous rocks are overlain by Cretaceous quartzite and Tertiary rhyolite in the northern area of the district (Gillerman, 1964). Two prominent fault systems trending slightly east of north are the main geologic structures in the district (Gillerman, 1964). Each fault system consists of a rather persistent fault from which other faults split off, trending to the northeast or northwest. Mineral Deposits The unusual nickel-cobalt-silver deposits of the Black Hawk mining district make the area one of special interest. Although similar deposits are described worldwide (Cobalt and Great Bear Lake in Canada and Joachimstah in the former Czechoslovakia (Gillerman and Whitebread, 1956), few known deposits have nickel- cobalt-silver ore with uraniumin carbonate gangue (Gillerman, 1964). In the Black Hawk district, the mineral deposits are simple fissure-filling veins mostly in the quartz diorite gneiss near bodies of monzonite porphyry. Four mineral assemblages occur: 1) silver-argentite-uraninite-niccolite-te-rannneisberg. 2) silver-rammeisbergite—gersdorffite—nickel skutterudite. 3) chalcopyrite-tennantite-galena-sphalerite. And 4) acanthite-jalpaite-pearceite-covellite (Von Bargen, 1979, 1993). Pitchblend is found with minor pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, and sphalerite. Other minerals occnning in these deposits are millerite, erythrite, annabergite, barite, manganocalcite, and various nickel and cobalt sulfarsenides and arsenides (Gillerman, 1964; Von Bargen, 1979, 1993). Deposits are most plentiful in a 1-mi-wide by as much as 3-mi-long area on the southwest side of Twin Peak stock (Gillerman, 1964). The veins can be traced for more than 1,000 ft and have reached as much as 600 ft vertically. They vary in width from 1 to 3 ft but may open to as much as 10 ft wide where they cut quartz diorite gneiss. The veins are inconspicuous in outcrop and are recognized by brown-stained, carbonate filling (Gillerman, 1964). The carbonates, largely calcite, dolomite, siderite and ankerite, are the most common vein minerals. Quartz is rare, occurring as a dull yellow-green chert or chalcedony. A dump sampled assayed 0.005 % U308, 0.08% Cu, 0.05% Pb, 0.06% Zn, and 0.0052% Ni (McLemore, 1983, #3745). Mineralization occurred about 65.3 +/-1.2 Ma ago and at temperatures of 29O deg - 41O deg C (Gewe, 1986). Low salinities of fluid inclusions ( Condition: Who are we? We’re A+ Rated with the BBB.
