A report of diamond drilling conducted one-half mile west of the town of Lusk, Niobrara County, Wyoming. The mine, a silver and copper producer from 1880 to 1886, was first worked for uranium by E. D. Lorimer from 1919 to 1922. Subsequent uranium mining was done by the Wyoming Uranium Corporation in 1951 and 1952; and Edmund Key Interests and Joel L. Starnes, each working separate leases, during the winter of 1952 and 1953. The drilling was designed to explore the Silver Cliff Fault for possible uranium ore mineralization below the oxidized zone.
