The Gold Drop mine is 8.5 kilometres north of Greenwood and about one kilometre east of the south end of Jewel Lake. Access is from the Jewel Lake road and Dentonia mine via the Jewel shaft.
Production from this claim was recorded over a period of seven years between 1926 to 1941. A total of 296 tonnes of ore was mined yielding 5 grams per tonne gold; 29 grams per tonne silver; and a minor amount of lead.
The two adits are 16 metres apart vertically, and explore the Gold Drop vein at shallow depth. The lower adit, elevation 1380 metres, driven as a crosscut, gradually changes direction from slightly west of north to almost east and reached the vein 67 metres from the portal. The vein was followed 17 metres in a northerly direction, and a small part of it was stoped. The upper adit, at elevation 1400 metres, is collared about 24 metres northeast of this stope and heads northerly for about 6 metres to the vein. It then follows the vein about 21 metres slightly east of north to a point where the vein splits. The left split is followed for 24 metres and the right split for about 76 metres. The latter split trends north easterly for about 24 metres and then runs parallel to the left split. Shipments to Trail have been made by previous operators from one small stope in the left split, from several small stopes in the right split, and from the lower adit.
