Map is interesting for various reason. It is part of several claims under one Survey Number, and this particular claim has lost quite much ground to a conflicting claim named Rustler, but there still ground left, even if much of that overlaps other claims in same Survey number.
Claim is not a regular shape, it has skewed sides, and has a south and northern part without connection due to the before mention Rustler claim on the same grounds. The Discovery Point is on the northern part, about 1/6 south of the northern border, inside an area filled with text so very hard to read it all. There seem to be a Shaft just north of it, with a Drift going west, and then a Cut and Trench east of that shaft. In addition, a Tunnel with Drifts and a Cut seems to go in northern direction. A Building can also been seen southwest of all this, inside ground also marked as being part of the Superior claim, where also a road passes just south of this structure...
Inside the area marked as not part of this group of claims there are a Shaft marked up in north, following by a smaller Building, big Trench, another Shaft, a Cut, further south yet another Shaft and a Cut. Even further south there is another Trench marked, then a Cut, before part of a long, and angled Tunnel is shown coming into the Rustler ground from a Tunnel opening down into the Grover Cleveland claim, also part of the same Survey number as the Anaconda claim. There are also two structures marked at that opening.
In the south of the Anaconda claim there is two pieces of land left, and one of them contains a Cut and a Tunnel and the other has a small piece of the before mention long angled tunnel, which then heads into Mary McKinney ground... I assume the owners of the Anaconda mine must have got permission or bought out the Rustler claim as they cross it big time with their tunnel down in the area known as the Anaconda Mine which on this map more seems to be the Grover Cleveland ground.
Map is way to early for any railroads to show up, but the claim would in the south be crossed by first the Midland Terminal and in 1900 by the Low Line some distance further north, up the hill.
