A fairly recent copper mine dating back to 1968  There are two adits on the property and also a trench.  The bottom of the 2 adits appears to be the main mining activity from its day in production, however, is now sealed off for safety.  The upper adit is open but goes in no more than 25'.  You can access this mine via Mile 38, then turn north-west to Tilley Lakes.  The mine is located east midway between the two Lakes.
