The Humbug Mine was situated on the east slope of Table Mountain near Jamestown. It was the richest mine of its kind in the Mother Lode. Producing more than $4,000,000 worth of gold in its heyday due to the geology of the mountain, the mine produced placer and river gold, as opposed to hard rock which is what is normally found underground. John O'Neil took out the first patent on the property in November of 1880. The Humbug Mine began on his property and ran partially under it. In an agreement with O'Neil for the mineral rights, the mine was operated by The California Company out of Boston. The mine was owned and operated from 1914 to 1950 by Frank T. Moyle and his family.
