Osceola District – White Pine County, Nevada

Located in the heart of Nevada's gold bearing Osceola District, The Lucky Boy Mineral Claim covers the entire workings of the Lucky Boy Mine. A series of adits and shafts make up well over 800' of underground development.

The Lucky Boy Mine has been historically worked for gold, silver, and lead. Believed to have been discovered in early 1900, and worked intermittently by small-scale operations through 1982.

Production numbers are not available and history of the site is very spotty. Mineral assessment is based off reports and documentation collected from inside and near the mine camp.

Discarded relics on the site consist of a large motor with some hydraulic parts and pieces.

There are remnants of a very old arrastra below the mine entrance. This is an indicator of the gold deposits located here. Silver and galena are not processed by crushing and separating. The quartz and small bits of gold visible in the current condition of the mine are a good indication of potential in the area. The mines and workings should be cored and assayed to determine the highest value regions.

Estimated 150,000 tons of waste dump. One large pile appears to be a high-grade stash and showed good quartz and metallic ores. This high-grade pile is estimated 4 tons.

Plenty of room for parking and staging vehicles and equipment on the claim as existing.

The Lucky Boy Mine claim is recommended for a small miner who could operate under casual use guidelines. The deposit should be examined, explored and defined before major operations are undertaken.

The oldest rocks in the exposed in the district are Precambrian quartzite, conglomerate quartzite, and argillite. These rocks are overlain conformably by the Cambrian Prospect Mountain Quartzite, Pioche Shale, and Pole Canyon Limestone and are intruded by granitic rocks of Mesozoic(?) age. The sedimentary strata are tilted westward, commonly about 35', but locally as much as 85', and in some localities-notably at the Osceola mine, they dip north. The sedimentary rocks are cut by steep faults that trend north or northeast and both the granite and sedimentary rocks are cut by joints and sheeted zones of small displacement. All of the sedimentary rocks exposed within the Osceola district lie in lower-plate rocks, below the Snake Range.[1]

The Lucky Boy Mine Claims contains no less than 3 adits and a single shaft within its boundaries. An adit is historically reported with a length of 350'. The survey team was unable to locate this particular adit, but evidence of a larger adit was found. This adit had collapsed at the portal and was inaccessible. The waste dumps show white quartz, some pyrites and small bits of gold. No silver or lead was noted or defined.

Another smaller adit drifts only 30' and showed substantial iron stained quartz, but very little of any other minerals.

This adit is cut into a solid rock face on the hillside of the claim. This is most likely a newer working on the claim. The Drift is 30 and cut chasing along a vein that that shows copper and oxidized iron in quartz.

The last and largest portal on the claim. The lower adit entrance will take you back into the main tunnel with multiple cross drifts and runs back 177 feet to the face. A shaft was found 62 feet into a cross-drift. There are also two winzes inside the drifts, these both are flooded within 40' of the main level. The workings in this mine chase a wide quartz body with multiple offshoots. The quartz shows oxidized iron and pyrites. This combined with copper, galena and some free-milling gold.
