This mine site was located in 1855 by Peter Cameron, A.M. Wood, Will Powell and C.G. Lake. Lightner Mining Company organized and operated from 1896-1915. A 40 stamp mill crushed 500,000 tons of ore from vein which widened to 120'. Ore stopped at 700' and cave in occurred. A new 900' shaft failed to locate vein. Total production from the mine was $6,000,000.
