|This is one of many abandoned structures just across the road from what the
DeLorme map indicates at the Nikolaus Eureka Mine. The rocks were hauled up a
long ramp to the top of this structure, then probably crushed and extracted
below. There were many different cement foundations in the area, most of the
wood is completely gone.
||Just a little ways away is a very nasty looking tailings pool. I did not
get very close to this pool and I made sure to stay upwind at all times. It was
rich in some kind of mineral. Most of the mines in this area were lead/silver
mines. I don't know what was processed at this particular mine, but the rock
piles in the area were stained bright green.|
|The desert drys things out very well indeed. Here is a small bar of
Jergens soap, as dried out as it can be.
