Except for a tiny bit of road marked as entering the claim from east about 1/5 down from the north - a road not even passing through the claim, just stopping - map is real boring. The Discovery Shaft is marked about middle of the claim, a little bit south of the middle actually. There is a second Shaft and a third Shaft to the north.
The most north one is pretty close to the Golden Circle mainline, possible same shaft as seen along that road on some images, with a connected ore house over a dump tunnel made in wood. Incidentally, this southern most shaft, near the south border, shown as a Prospect shaft in Sanborn 1900 and gone by the time 1908 Sanborn was made, also had a dump tunnel made in wood, under it the original High Line entered the town of Victor.
In the 1906 Geology book this southern most shaft is mention as being an incline one, with 4 levels, while the main shaft - the Oliver shaft - is situated 285 feet north of the south end of the claim, sadly those two are not marked in the claim map...
In addition I have some underground mining maps related to this mine. I also have a so-called Apex map even if I don't know what that is exactly. It seems to show loosely some squares I guess is structures on the surface.
