Panamint Treasure Mine

It is a bit of a hike to find this great little gem of a mine. It was worked as early as the 1890s, and again in the 1930s. The miners walked away from the mine in 1941 when World War II broke out and a presidential order closed many “non-essential” mines in the country. Looks like they never came back. Artifacts from that era remain.

If you find this site, please leave everything here for the next explorer to find. Locations like this are rare and provide a true glimpse into Depression Era mining life.
