Ghost Towns and Mines


The Pershing Mine is one of many mercury mines in this district. It was discovered in 1912 and abandoned in 1919. The mine was reopened a few years later under new owners, and in 1928 a new rotary furnace was built. The mine closed again in 1931. During WWII there was some development done, but the post-war period saw only occasional activity.
