The proper locality name for this cuprite after delafossite :

In Collection of JNCM JNCM wrote:
Cuprite ( Variety Chalcotrichite ) After Delafossite

is as follows:

Czar Mine,
Bisbee,
Warren District,
Cochise County, Arizona

The Copper Queen mine was finished by about 1888 or 1889. Then the Czar and the Holbrook mines became the main producers for the Copper Queen Mining Company. Most specimens labeled from the Copper Queen mine are in fact from the Czar or Holbrook and even the Southwest mine. Even miners who worked in the more recent underground mines like the Cole and the Campbell would label their specimens as coming from the Cole mine, Copper Queen Branch, Bisbee, Arizona. No one in Arizona uses the Queen Hill as a locality identifier.

Thanks Les.

So, like this?:
"Czar Mine, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mountains, Cochise County, Arizona, USA"

Mindat lists it as:

Czar Mine (Czar Shaft), Copper Queen Mine (Halero Mine), Queen Hill, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts, Cochise Co., Arizona, USA

The Czar was a shaft that intersected the Copper Queen Mine workings, as I understand.

You can see the following for more of the history:

You found the right source for anything Bisbee. The Graeme clan site is correct and fun to explore.

I will always defer to the Graeme's but the information I provided is based on a conversation with Dick Graeme. While the Czar may have intersected the Copper Queen workings, the two mines were separate entities.

How about the "Queen Hill"?
Although "no one uses this", is it topographically correct?
If topographically correct, it may be better to add it in order to be more accurate? so :
"Czar Mine, Queen Hill, Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mountains, Cochise County, Arizona, USA"
