      General notes:
      Map is boring. It is one of those that has ground lost to other claims right from the first map, and then is further reduced by an Amended map. The Discovery Shaft is about 3/5 north of the south border, with a second Shaft short distance north. About same distance north there is a third Shaft, shown with a Drift in northerly direction, followed by a fourth Shaft north of this again, about same distance between all four.
      graphic for visual presentation of text A fifth Shaft is shown quite a bit further north, but that is in ground lost by the time the Amended map is made, most likely it is part of the Tidal Wave claim. The Amended map show several claims taking ground, from all directions more or less.

      graphic for visual presentation of text I have not found any Sanborn Fire Insurance maps of this mine, nor have I been able to pinpoint it on any images of this general area, but I keep wondering if this was connected directly to the MT spur of the mainline just below the mighty Portland Mine, or via horse drawn transport as most mines where.
