Known Producing Info:
Map is great in many ways, and boring in other ways. Share and has lost lot of ground to many other claims, and has its own ground divided into three pieces. There is a triangular shape down south, which is interesting as it has both a Road and the M.T. Railroad spur down to Victor crossing it, just north of the road. South of the road there is a Cabin marked out almost at a second corner marked as Corner No. 4, apparently they had to move the east corners further west for some reason. This make a second structure, marked as an Engine House completely outside the marked claim area. The Discovery Shaft is shown just north of the M.T. spur, with a second Shaft and a third Shaft partly on top of each other marked southwest of the discovery shown, south of the railroad spur but north of the road.
A second piece of ground is seen just north of the north tip of the south most block of ground. It is a very small piece of ground taken out of the N.E. corner of the Golconda claim, just below and east of the M.T. mainline where there is marked a Tunnel and which I from another map has got confirmed this is the Columbine Tunnel as per a Horace Swartley Poley photo is named. However, I also seen the tunnel marked as the Columbine-Victor Tunnel, and it was meant to but I think they never got around to make it go all the way through Squaw Mountain. This tunnel though is often in name confused with a second tunnel that indeed went through Squaw Mountain, but was lover in level above sea, and went further as it went from the Gold Coin Mine. Still, I love the fact I finally in early June 2015 has been able to locate the tunnel on that long known photo by Poley!
Up north a third much larger part of the ground is shown, still seems to have lost grounds on all its borders as well, and there is nothing marked out here, so not that important area I presume. On the Amended map, there is a so called Tract B taken out from N.E. corner heading in southwesterly direction a short distance, about 1/3 into the ground, and that is all.
