While not the greatest quality it is still a nice show of the mine operation often known as the Peggy Mine in upper Squaw Gulch, or Anaconda Gulch as I've also seen it called. This part of Gold Hill seems rather cramped for space, and they sure took any advantages of the area as they could, and they sure built a large ore-house, seen on the lower left side of this view.Peggy Mine & Anaconda Gulch Scene

      General notes:
      Map is interesting due to various reasons. First, it is a tiny claim, only 0.359 Acres large, it shows part of two Roads, one is part of a corner not part of the claim as lost to another claim, and the other is passing through the southern part of the claim. Location is in Squaw Gulch, upper Anaconda, and it shows three Houses, which also makes it interesting. Third, the fact that info has told me this is the location of a small but very cute mine known as Peggy Mine, hence this is a really cool map! The Discovery Shaft is located about 1/3 south of northeastern border and about 1/3 east of northwestern border, with a Cut just below the northeastern border. And that is all.
