Johnson (1973) writes: "The Staggs district is in the northern Black Mountains, also known as the Bluewing Mountains, in western Pershing County. A small amount of placer gold was recovered during the period 1940-41 from a placer deposit at the northwest end of the mountains (sec. 12, T. 29 N., R. 26 E.). The placer extends north along the major drainage from the Bluewing Mountains."<ref>Maureen Johnson, "Placer Gold Deposits of Nevada," p. 28, USGS 1356, 1973.</ref>
