IM1
Ireland Mine

The Ireland group of claims (No. 56, pl. 30) covers a low hill north of the mouth of the Porter Wash in the Goodsprings Mining District, in Clark County. Within an area scarcely 500 feet in diameter there are 8 shafts and shallow pits, the deepest of which is an incline on the north side of the hill 125 feet deep.

The ore shipped from this property has come from small lenses of lead, copper, and zinc minerals. According to local reports several carloads of copper-bearing lead ore have been shipped from this site.
