Inscription.  This is a Papago word meaning, mountain shaped like a carrying basket.

Discovery of a pocket of gold and silver ore led to a fabulous boom development here in 1883.

The desert has reclaimed the original site and its suburbs of Logan City, New Virginia, Brooklyn and Allen City. The mine was a complete failure—a tiny pocket of riches on the mountain.
