Gold was found along the banks of the East Fork Carson River in 1860 and the goldrush was on. Numerous placer and Hardrock operations began to spring up along the upper reaches of the East Fork Carson River; bringing in a total of approx. 5 million in Gold and Silver, with the majority coming out of the Monitor - Mogul Mining District and Silver Creek Mining District.
HIGHER BENCH DEPOSITS WITH GOLD-BEARING MATERIAL. THE PAN SHOWING THE GOLD IS WHAT I GOT FROM PANNING SOME OF THE HIGHER BENCH DEPOSITS.
MASSIVE GRAVEL BARS
So, whether you're a part-time prospector, full time gold miner, or dedicated metal detectorist, there has never been a better time to get involved in the modern-day Gold Rush! Not only is gold mining a hobby and or a full-time job that can pay you back, it's an activity the entire family can enjoy together in the great outdoors.
Perhaps one of the best benefits of gold prospecting, gold mining, and or metal detecting is that with the price of gold today, you don't have to find much to completely pay for your claim and equipment-- and the rest is pure profit!
WITH GOLD PRICES STARTING TO MOVE STEADILY UPWARD, THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO OWN A GOLD CLAIM!

SILVER MOUNTAIN MINING DISTRICT, ALPINE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
LOCATION, HISTORY, GEOLOGY, ORE DEPOSITS, MINES
LOCATION AND HISTORY: Silver Mountain is in south-central Alpine County about 10 miles south of Markleeville. Gold and silver were discovered here around 1860, and a rush began soon afterward. Kongsburg, later known as Silver Mountain City, was established by Scandinavian miners in 1862. The town grew rapidly and had a population of nearly 3000 in the following year. It was the first seat of government in Alpine County.
GEOLOGY AND ORE DEPOSITS: The gold- and silver-bearing deposits occur chiefly in altered volcanic rocks. The deposits consist of veins of silicified bre.ccia containing pyrite, chalcopyrite, and other sulfides. Some deposits contain a series of parallel veins. The values usually are erratically distributed, although a few high-grade pockets were found in the early days. A few quartz veins are found in granitic rocks in the western part of the district.
MINES: Exchequer, Garfield, Isabella, J.X.L., Lady Franklin, Pennsylvania, Raymond Meadows.
Monitor - Mogul Mining District, Alpine County, California
LOCATION, HISTORY, GEOLOGY, ORE DEPOSITS, MINES
LOCATION AND HISTORY: Monitor and Mogul are in central Alpine County about six miles sourheast of Markleeville. Mogul is in the north end, and Monitor is in the south end of the district.
The region was intensely prospected during the late 1850s and early 1860s. Substantial amounts of gold, silver, and copper were produced from such mines as the Alpine, Colorado, Currz, and Morning Star. Operators had much difficulty in milling the sulfide-rich or "rebellious" ores, and shipped some are all the way to Swansea, Wales, for treatment. Monitor, named for the famous iron clad warship of the Civil War, also was known as Loope.
Operations declined in the 1880s, but there was some mining activity in the early 1900s and 1930s. The Zaca mine was worked on a moderate scale during the 1960s. The value of the total gold and silver production is unknown, but some estimates have placed it between $3 million and $5 million.
GEOLOGY: The district is underlain by volcanic rocks of Tertiary age. Andesitic tuff breccia is most common, but also present are various types of flow rocks including obsidian. In places, particularly at Colorado Hill, which is in the middle of the district, the volcanic rocks have been intensely altered and silicified. These altered rocks have a bleached appearance, in places stained yellow, red, and brown by iron oxide. These bleached zones stand out prominently from the unaltered rock.
ORE DEPOSITS: The ore deposits occur in the zones of alteration and silicification. The gold, silver, and copper are nearly always associated with various suJfide minerals, which include pyrite, chalcopyrite, enargite, sphalerite, galena, argentite, and arsenopyrite. A number of other are minerals also are present. The ore occurs in disseminated form, in veins and seams, and occasionally in tabular sulfide masses. In places high-grade pockets have been found.
MINES: Alpine, Curtz, Georgiana, Globe, Lincoln, Morning Star, Orion, Red Gap, Silver Hill. Zaca mines: Advance, Colorado, Tarshish.

GHOST TOWN?
Here's an excerpt about the historic boom town from Up and Down California in 1860-1864; The Journal of William H. Brewer :
"Silver Mountain (town) is a good illustration of a new mining town. We arrive by trail, for the wagon road is left many miles back. As we descend the canyon from the summit, suddenly a bright new town bursts into view...
Founded by Scandinavian miners as Kongsberg in 1858. Silver City was the Alpine County seat from 1864 to 1875.In 1878 news of a silver strike in Bodie emptied the town of most residents. Silver City turned into a ghost town as businesses closed. Buildings like the old log jail were relocated to the new county seat in Markleeville."
