Did just find this. http://dailyjournalonline.com/business/local/exploration-under-way-for-mineral-deposits/article_1a02c1cf-64b1-589a-83f1-cbd3a08439c0.html

Well, ain't that something. I'd have to do some research to determine if what they're talking about is even remotely reasonable, but Madison County has some interesting ore deposits. The Madison Mine (Anschutz property) is a crazy one, and it has enough ore left to reopen eventually, especially with what cobalt is doing.

Guess the proposed tunnel never went in. Wish I could find the article I read that talked about pumping it out and transporting slurry via underground pipeline. Then the slurry would be rinsed and transported. The article was from like three years ago.


Yeah, the plan was to build the pelletizing plant in Crystal City for easy river access. It was a ridiculous pipe dream (ha!) if you ask me.

All the companies associated with that project seem to have gone under, except Alberici, which is a BIG player in underground construction and wasn't banking on a single project. One of these days I need to start annoying people on the phone and figure out who owns that place.

Im new here but I was curious to if anyone was pretty familar with this place and could maybe answer my question, right where I have circled on this map there is dirt that went down the hill a little bit before you pass the tailings pond dam, my friends and I thought there was a bit of water down there where its a little darker. (it was night time and thats what it looked like) But once we got down there it was just darker dirt but the ground was very hollow right there and I was wondering if anyone could explain why it sounded hollow?

Capital Sand seems to have mined some of the tailings as aggregrate on that part of the property. I'd imagine the hollow sound was a combination of clay and sand that happened to reverberate. Certain types of clay mud sound hollow after drying out. I've encountered the exact same thing at the Moselle No. 10 mine.

I've never made it out to there but I've wanted to as I'd assume there are some interesting sulfide minerals present in the tailings. Have you found any good rock hounding there or was it just a bunch of junk?

I've found quite a few awesome hematite samples. Most of the sulfides seem to have oxidized, and the main pit is full of weak acid. I've been helping a friend with a freshwater ecology project on the site; arranging a method to assess the main pit is...challenging. Looks like it will be a plastic-hull kayak, hopefully without anyone on it and just some sensors.
