Adjoins the Alameda mine on the southwest, and the Wakoosta on the northeast. The vein strikes N 70° E, 50° N, as in the Alameda mine, and is a lenticular quartz vein that pinches and swells. The mine was described in 1899 as a consistent small producer for the past 30 years, and in 1900 as having yielded a large amount of $20.00 milling ore, and other are from several high grade stringers that probably were similar to those mined by Charles Lane and Fred Walker in 1898, which were 8 to 12 inches wide and averaged 800 opt Ag and considerable Au. In 1900 the mine was being worked on the 100 and 150 levels, in 2.5 ft of ore. Late in that year 139 tons of ore were shipped, yielding 257.34 oz of Au. Caved and inaccessible in 2000.
