Ingot California Mines
Ingot California Mines
Take Highway 299 east to Ingot, about 16 miles east of Redding. When you get to the Ingot road sign, start looking for mine remains on the right side of the highway (when traveling east from Redding). The remains of the Afterthought Mine: the stamp mill, collapsing houses, dilapidated mine outbuildings, sections of old railroad grade and remains of the smelter are visible from the highway and there are many places to safely pull off the road to take photos. Remember that all the remaining structures are on private property, meaning you cannot trespass. Also remember the dangers around old mines -- rattlesnakes, rusty nails, mercury and open mine shafts that you can fall into. In 1873 Marcus Peck purchased the Copper Hill Mine group for $6,000. In 1876, Peck discovered copper ore in an adjoining ledge and patented it as the Afterthought, a mining term that means an adjoining claim located after the establishment of a major claim. During its early years, it was mined for silver, gold, copper, lead and zinc, but eventually became one of the largest copper mines in Shasta County. It suffered many setbacks over the years. To process ore, a small smelter was built in 1875, but it failed because of excess zinc in the ore. Another smelter was built to process the ore, and a small railroad system was established to haul the ore from the mine to the smelter. The railroad consisted of a small steam locomotive that pulled 20 five-ton ore cars. Portions of the railroad grade are still visible. The smelter was shut down by legal action because of the damages caused from the poisonous toxic fumes released into the air from its chimney. An 8?-mile-long aerial tram was built to haul ore north to the smelter at Bully Hill. The tram was capable of carrying 140 2-ton buckets placed approximately 300 yards apart. A dramatic portion of the tramway spanned the Pit River. In 1927, operations ended because of a steady decline in copper and zinc prices. The mine operated intermittently over the years; the last active owner was Coronado Copper & Zinc Co. which operated it until 1952. The mine contains nearly 20,000 feet of tunnels and shafts. Today it is officially known as California Historic Landmark No. 9. However, there is no historic monument or plaque to let the many people who wonder what this interesting place was all about.

A Short History of Silver City, Idaho Silver City, Idaho is one of the few old mining towns that did not burn down or become commercialized into a modern city. Visiting Silver City is like going back into history. The Idaho Hotel is as it was 100 years ago with a few modern amenities. Rugged and picturesque, the 8,000 feet-high Owyhee Mountains surround Silver City, elevation 6,200'. The history-filled town contains about seventy-five structures that date from the 1860's to the early 1900's. During its "heydays", Silver City had about a dozen streets, seventy-five businesses, three hundred homes, a population of around 2,500, twelve ore-processing mills, and was the Owyhee County seat from 1866 to 1934. Some of the largest stage lines in the West operated in the area, and Silver City had the first telegraph and the first daily newspaper in the territory in 1874. Telephones were in use here at least by 1880, and the town was "electrified" in the 1890's. There were four separate burial areas nearby, with a few very interesting stones remaining; some quite large and elaborately carved. All are well worth the hike to see and photograph. More that two dozen camps provided shelter, supplies and amusement for the thousands of people who came to the mountains seeking their fortunes in one way or another. The ruins of some of these can still be found though nature is reclaiming most of them at an accelerated rate. Almost a dozen cemeteries and many more remote burial sites attest to the hard and sometimes dangerous and violent lives led by many. Hundreds of mines pock-mark and honeycomb the mountains; one had upwards of seventy miles of tunnels laboriously hand-dug through it. Between 1863 and 1865, more than two hundred and fifty mines were in operation and hundreds more were developed thereafter. Through the seventy-odd years of mining, more than twelve ore-processing mills gleaned rich rewards in tons of gold and silver. Large stacks of gold and silver ingots were photographed for posterity. At the very least, sixty million dollars worth of precious metals were taken from the area. At today's prices, that amount would be even more impressive. At the present time, there are no major mines operating in the area. My Grandfather use to work in one of the mines at Silver City
