Ghost Towns and Mines

 
 


This former miner’s camp isn’t actually on Buffalo Summit, but is across the canyon just east of the summit. It is also about a mile north of the Highland Mine. There is nothing at the mine save for some shallow prospect holes and trenches, and the remains of a very small stamp mill.


Here at the camp there is a cabin made of old railroad ties, a dilapidated shed, and some foundations and other artifacts that appear to be the remnant of a homemade mill, or perhaps a facility for washing and separating gold dust from placer ore.
