Ghost Towns and Mines

 
 
This site in Tule Canyon was once a mining camp. It is just a few miles down the canyon from Tule Corral. Currently there is another corral here made of riveted pipe, a windmill, the ruins of a five-stamp mill, a few fallen cabins, and one cabin which is still standing. There are some small mines up in the hills behind the townsite.


The first time I visited this site was in 1990, although I had it confused with another site called Stateline. At that time the mill building was starting to collapse but was mostly still standing. Two fallen cabins still had peaked roofs.


I’ve decided to provide a separate page for each of the three areas of interest at this site. This page is devoted to the mill ruins.


When I first visited this site in 1990, the mill building was collapsing but still recognizable (right). In 2012, above, all that remains of the building itself is a small pile of wood and rusted sheet metal. The massive timbers of the stamp mill still stand, as does the large wooden ore bin.


Nearby are some stone foundations, a small galvanized metal tank, and various other debris.
