Historic Silver mine, pb, zn, cu, ag, au , second grade ore piles to 30 oztag at nw corner of property , 3000 ft of underground workings with good lateral extent , consistent and attractive grades / see on google Re; property examination report 2008 ,Silver Hill and Richelu property excellent report by Linda Caron, Geo. The nw slope in the claim area also has many turn of the century open cuts and diggings including adits and portal remnants evident though out the area. Humbolt silver diggings to the north.
