      General notes:
      The Plat Maps are of 3-lodes with a combined acreage of 23.364 Acres on the original Plat and only 3.863 Acres when the Amended Plat Map is created 2 years & 3 months later. Maps themselves are boring, but for this lode claim it shows a very reduced claim on the Amended map so interesting in that perspective, and for sharing some ground and Survey Number with two other claims.
      graphic for visual presentation of text Sadly there are no railroad grades drawn in from the short lived F. & C. C. switchback spur down Beacon Hill to the main shaft of this group of claims due to the maps being too early, hence also no shaft-houses or any other structures shown on these Plat Maps.
      graphic for visual presentation of text The Discovery Shaft is almost at the southeastern short border, only 30 feet in from the imaginary line, inside shared ground with the Geneveve claim, and the 1903 USGS topo-map has no traces of this shaft! The western part of this claim that is still intact as owned ground, two pieces, has no traces of work done to them on the Amended Plat, neither on the 1903 USGS topo-map. The largest piece of ground left on this claim is that one in west, with the third and last piece full in a bit from the west end of the claim, being a small narrow part along the center line of the claim, coming direct from the discovery shaft at the east end of the claim.
      graphic for visual presentation of text The working shaft known as the Old Gold mine in most images I seen, is from what I gather looking at various maps put unto each other using Global Mapper, the Discovery Shaft of the Geneveve Lode claim of this group of claims, as this shaft fits quite well with a Mine Structure marking on the 1903 USGS topo-map, one I for a long time thought was the Henry Adney but number is wrongly placed on the 1903 map.
