If these old girls could talk, it would be a story I would listen to.

All are next to or within 2 or 3 minute walk from extensive placer workings.

Local stream bottoms were worked out 1st, by those that were there 1st circa 1865 to 1880.

Next generation from 1880 to around 1925 were these.

2nd generation ditched water to a dammed holding pond.

From the pond, they boomed water through deeper ground to remove overburden.

Them hand mined the bottom they exposed with rocker boxes, or through long toms.
