The Mohave Chief is a documented Gold mine in the Chemuhuevi Mountains of Mohave county arizona.
Previously known as the Asar mine, the substantially sized mining complex has records of work in the late 1970's. Original location and development was likely completed during the early gold rushes of the 1900's-1920's judging by the leaching style mill remnants.
Primary workings consist of two haulage adits, driven at a 90 degree angle into the mineralized hillside outcropping; as well as four incline style shafts further north of the adits.
All entrances ,save the upper two inclines shafts are accessible and open for exploration and further development.
Underground workings are estimated at well over 1500 feet in drifts, with raises and winzes for shaft connection.
The hard-rock outcropping is predominately mineralized quartz and county host rock. General vein strike is running NW in a narrow gauge vein between 7-inches and 3 feet in width, the mineralized veins consist of auriferous (gold bearing) pyrites, Galena and Sphalerite.
Two large mine spills are located beneath each haulage adit, an estimated total amount of over 10,000 tons of mineralized spill is located on the mine.
The spill is low-to-mid grade ore and host rock.
A small crushing and leaching operation was located just beneath the primary mine spill, a few relics and leaching tanks rest on the area.
Access to the extremely secluded mine is available to off road capable 4x4 vehicles, ATV's or horseback. Standard clearance vehicles cannot access the area.
The completely off grid location is suitable for solar power, generator and water storage for camping and development.
A perfect location to getaway from the craziness of everyday life, suitable for the beginning mining enthusiast up the the established processing company.
