    Lightbulb Big Headache trying To Locate Lone Star Mine, Lone Star Canyon, AZ.

    I've been pulling out all the stops trying to locate the old Lone Star Mine located in Lone Star Canyon, AZ. This is the mine originally worked by Sam Donnelly and company from Sunnyside, AZ. The other mine they worked was the near by Copper Glance Mine. The town of Sunnyside and it's Cemetery are easy enough to locate. So is the Copper Glance Mine. What's been impossible is find are the GPS coordinates for the original Lone Star Mine. That is where Sam Donnelly and his partner are buried in unmarked graves.
    The best directions I've been able to come up with is the mine is 3 miles S.E. of the town of Sunnyside. Basically that is a needle in a haystack chance of finding it. Any help would be much appreciated!

    That pretty much corresponds with the above post from 40FORDJIM.
    Not sure if there will be access as that is now on the back side of Kartchner Caverns State Park.
    It's close enough I'd be willing to go take a look once we get back to cooler temps.

    Default Same name

    The original Lone Star Mine I'm looking for is approximately 3 miles South East from the ghost town of Sunnyside. It should be near the old Wakefield Mine in the Lone Mountain area. It will be the needle in the haystack to locate without better coordinates. Thanks for looking you two!

    Thanks Tad, that puts me in the general area. Being that it was never a big producing mine will make it a difficult find. I'll try and draw a search area radius and go with that.

    Here's directions to the Copper Glance Mine. I think Sam Donnellson was involved in this one and his Lone Star Mine was nearby. What do you think?

    Directions to Copper
    Glance Mine:



    Drive towards Sunnyside town site on FR 228, past the turnoff to Sunnyside Cemetery. Turn right at T junction on road marked “Sunnyside Canyon and Copper Glance Mine.” FR 204. Go 1.8 miles. A road on the left goes .7 miles to the start of the Sunnyside Canyon hiking trail. It is 3.5 miles to hike to Copper Glance Mine.
