(Seeber,1983).  The shaft was sunk to a depth of 2,108 ft with development on 14 levels, the lowest producing level being at 1,750 ft, with the main economic mineralization confined to the No. 3, M and 10 and 11 quartz veins.  Underground development included 20,239 ft of drifting and 3,149 ft of crosscutting.  The main economic mineralization was confined to the No. 3, M and 10 and 11 quartz veins. Wartime restrictions in 1942 forced the mine's closure in 1942 (Seeber,1983).
