On the slopes to the south you can see the remains of the Silver Bell Mine, with its tipples still standing.
These ore bins held and fed rock to a stamp battery that crushed ore into a sandy-watery pulp and pushed it onto an amalgamation table where the precious metals were extracted.
Though the mine operated some 40 years, ownership and details about the mine's riches are sketchy.
Nevertheless, it was a versatile mine: gold in the 1930s, lead in the 1940s, and copper in the 1950s.
Prospectors began staking claims in this desert region around 1865. Gold fever gave rise to mine names like Fore Aces, Big Bozo Claim, Lucky Turkey #2, and Hard Digging. Mining reached its peak here by 1917 and tapered off by the 1960s.
