The Copper Ledge Claim is an 20.66 acre unpatented Lode Claim located in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Featuring an open cut style of mining and two adits partially collapsed with tailings piles.
The Copper Ledge Lode Claim was developed by a 4 small independent miners local to the area in approximately 1952 and was worked sporadically till the 1960's.
Little historic documentation can be found regarding the gold, silver, and copper produced on the claim and this is more than likely due to the four miners keeping their production information from prying eyes.
Both adits have a reported approximate length of 500' of total workings.
Bot adits are air slack and collapsed just at the entrances and can be re-opened with a little small scale development work.
Additionally, the open cut style of surface workings bode well for prospectors not interested in going underground. Small surface operations are significantly cheaper and easier to develop for small scale miners.
Geological Structures & Trends
The ore body on the Copper Ledge Claim shows excellent surface expression within the open cut ledge.
While the main vein structure has a length of 1,436' on a compass heading of 77.63˚, the general trend of the main vein is NE/SW. Additionally, two secondary vein structures were traced on the claim both running approximately 330' - 350' in traceable length and on a compass heading of 3.50˚ trending N/S.
Where the secondary veins meet the main vein structure excellent mineralization was noted within the old works and on the surface via small gossans and previously mined ore. The claim is primarily carrying gold with additional indicator minerals of copper and iron.
