      General notes:
      From info I am able to gather from various map sources, the USGS cartographers on the USGS 1903 topo-map messed up here and marked the Blue Flag Discovery Shaft as the Brigadier, while shafts for the Brigadier operations are further southwest.
      graphic for visual presentation of text This is instead the Blue Flag Discovery Shaft location! Both Plat Maps linked to this lode are quite boring; the Discovery Shaft is near the west end of the claim, with three more Shafts south and east of that.
      graphic for visual presentation of text The main working Blue Flag Mine Shaft I first found thanks to a map I got from a eBay seller focusing around the Joe Dandy, as on that map, the Main Working Shaft of the Blue Flag is shown all the way at the top and I could use claim lines to figure out which structure it was on the USGS 1903 topo-map!
      graphic for visual presentation of text On the Amended Plat Map of the lode claim, ground is lost to both the Kentucky Belle lode and even more to the Twin Sister No. 1 lode, or possible the Sentinel lode, hard to tell for sure, except it is no longer ground belonging to the Blue Flag lode/mine.
      graphic for visual presentation of text There has also been made another shaft near the Discovery Shaft not shown on the original Plat/map, but no structures or anything really useful is shown on the Plat Map.
