Ghost Towns and Mines


Despite extensive searching, I have found no information on this mine, not even its name. Since it is located on the west side of the Lodi Hills, I’m calling it the West Lodi Mine.

The only structure here is the large inclined headframe and combined ore bin. The ore bin is an interesting “drive through” design. Trucks could pull in under the bin to be loaded with ore. A much smaller bin was used for waste rock, which would be carted off for dumping.
