"Workings include a 600 foot deep main shaft and over 700 feet of drifts (1881). There were at least two old shafts connected at the 170 foot and 440 foot levels, drifts on the 130 foot, 230 foot, and 360 foot levels. The main workings are on the Stonewall Jackson claim. A 5-stamp mill and steam hoist were installed on the property (before 1881). The dump was reworked in 1947 by J.A. Alexander. No appreciable production after 1916."
