Spent a couple hrs looking at old mines and just cruising around looking at stuff. I stole some of the pics from my wife's Facebook.

The mine was last worked in 1920

They ought to plug that mine shaft up. I've seen kids get stuck in those, fire department had to be called to get them out.

This one goes in straight. The pic with the ladder Is a stope that goes straight up. Not down.

I obviously don't know up from down. The word "stope" I had to look up too. Not doing too well today.

There are unsafe mines in the area. Usually ready to cave in. This one is blasted through solid Rock and is not going anywhere. It's been through many large earthquakes in the area and still solid. The problems are dummies that go into a mine with no light and fall down a hole,others go upnor down levels and get lost or hurt.

I really enjoy going into them. I'm fascinated by them. I want to know how and who was there 100+ years ago and knew what to look for. Decided to blast a tunnel right here. The area is still way out in the boonies. Quite a long trip from any neaby town when on a horse or walking a donkey.

In order to find these places someone had to walk every inch of every hill and canyon!

I used to live in the Mojave. Palmdale. I'm trying to remember what they could have been looking for there. Any ideas what the mining ore was?

This was a Gold mine. Most in this area were Gold. One a few hills over was a Copper mine. Silver was farther north in Calico. This area was called "The dry lakes mining District" at one time.

I posted a link in an earlier post. Here is the mine we are standing in front of. https://westernmininghistory.com/mine_detail/10035680/
