Known Producing Info:
Map is quite boring, it is way ahead of the time when the Short Line ran just below of this mine... But, there is shown a Blacksmith Shop together with a long Adit tunnel with a Drift way in there, on the very east end of the claim - cool! :-)
The Discovery Shaft is about 2/5 west of the eastern end, with a second Shaft almost side by side. A third Shaft is shown about 1/5 east of the western edge of the claim.
This is a claim which seems to somehow have become divided by two mines, one east and one west part of the claim. The West part got known as Progress-Gold King and the East part as E. Porter Gold King.
Possible they where leasers, and ended up buying half each or there is another story here, so far as when this is written in February 2015 I can't tell for sure. Claim map don't tell that story...
