Long Description:
Historic Audrey Shaft Headframe
Little Daisy Mine

Largest wooden headframe still standing in Arizona, it was completed in 1918 to haul ore up from mine. Shaft is 1900 feet deep, concrete lined with cross tunnels every 100 feet to Edith shaft. Edith shaft headframe was completed in 1915 to haul men and supplies. A wooden structure it was torn down in 1981 and replaced with the steel version you see today, 260' to NW.

Between 1915 and 1938 almost 4 million tons of ore was extracted from the mine, producing 397,000 tons of copper, 221 tons of silver and 5½ tons of gold. Ore was brought to the surface then transported by tram and burro train, to the railhead in the valley. Later, ore was taken out underground through the Josephine tunnel, which was 1300 feet down and 2½ miles long.
