Ghost Towns and Mines

 
 


The earliest period of activity here was from 1862 to 1870. The Cimarron Mine (and nearby San Antonio Mine) was operated from 1937 to 1940. During that time it produced a verified shipment of over nine tons, containing 13.3 ounces of gold and 47.2 ounces of silver.


In 1950 the claims were leased by Chicago interests, with plans to dig a 400-foot crosscut, but no significant production occurred. In the early 1970s the claim was owned by two women, and small-scale mining was still taking place.


Since then the only activity has been a series of exploratory drilling programs.
