Ghost Towns and Mines


When gold was first discovered here in the 1860s, the site was called Gold Mountain. Mining didn’t really take off until 1881, when a ten-stamp mill was built by the Stateline Mining Company. Water was piped in from Tule Canyon.

Things soon started to wind down, and the post office was removed in 1891. There was a small resurgence of activity here in 1905.

Currently the site has many, many stone ruins, mostly at the east end. The west end has slightly more recent structures, including a cabin which is furnished and in useable condition. Please don’t trash it!

Note: Prior to 2012, I had misidentified some ruins as being Stateline. They actually are from another site called Roosevelt Well, NV.
