It is bordered to the north and south by federal land, and to the west and east by private land including large timber companies.


Gold in veins was discovered on the property in 1883. In production until 1935, the Hazel mine reported production of 40,000+ ounces of gold. The mine has been developed by five adits which vary in length from 100 to 1500 feet. There are 3 distinct gold bearing quartz veins identified including the Potato Patch vein which leads to an underground 1500 square foot room known as the Bridal Chamber, where “free gold festooned the sides and walls” of the chamber.
There are 9 ore and waste rock dumps on the property containing approximately 92,000 short tons of material, grading approximately 0.024 opt gold. Reports indicate that in the later stages of mining, the ore ran 1-5 ounces of gold per ton.
