This was a hard place to get to, mainly due to the long hike in. Knowing that we were in for a rough time, we decided to backpack in. It was a good choice. The mine isn’t much, with only two short adits, but records show it produced 34 tons, which was mostly silver, lead, copper and gold. The mine was worked on and off after 1926 and ore was packed out over the mountain on mules. What a journey that must have been. Water isn’t easy to come by up here either.
