Once again, this is one of those places that we came across while looking for a rock art site that we never did find. I was not able to locate the name or any other information on this mine, so I put out a request for information on this web site, and Guy Starbuck from Starbuck.org came through. This is the Ingomar Mine which was discovered in the 1880's and was active until around the 1920's, and then again until the late 1940's or early 1950's under a different name, the Milford 2. When it was in operation it was a lead-zinc mine.
The first structure below is where the end of the cable is anchored (photo 1). From here the cable runs up to the highest adit (mine entrance) at the top of the hill. The ore from the mine was placed into an ore cart and then the cart was dumped into a "basket" and brought back down the mountain via the cable and dumped into the structure pictured below. From there it was dropped into a truck and taken to be processed. A rough estimate of the distance from the structure below to the "highest adit" is about 1,000 yards.
