The Emma mine is located in the N1/4 sec. 22, T. 20 N., R. 19 E. The mine workings consist of a shaft, supposedly 300 feet deep, sunk on a silicified zone along the contact between Mesozoic metamorphic rocks and Tertiary granodiorite porphyry. The mineralized zone strikes approximately N. 80° W. Pyrite and oxidation products thereof, occur as fine disseminations in a siliceous gangue. Reportedly, some gold and silver accompany the pyrite. The mine has been idle for over 50 years.
