Copper Mountain

Excerpt from the 12th Report of the State Mineralogist

Excerpt from: Crawford, J. J., 1894, Twelfth Report of the State Mineralogist. California State Mining Bureau.

Goleta Mine (Quartz).—It is on the eastern base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, 6 miles N.E. of Lundy. It is one of a series of mines on an immense ore deposit running N. and S. This has not yet been opened sufficiently to show its pitch; the eastern wall is limestone, the western a porphyry-like rock. On the eastern side of this deposit is a vein of copper ore (malachite), 6 to 20 ft. in width, and averaging 8 per cent of metallic copper. The copper carbonate impregnates an exceedingly crushed and decomposed rock. On the west is the gold and silver vein. This is much decomposed on the surface and in most of the workings, the quartz being honeycombed and in places almost replaced by the decomposed rock-mass and iron oxides. The quartz is evidently a replacement of the rock along the mineralized zone. The deposit is opened by two tunnels. The lower one is 1,190 ft. long and has not yet cut the ore body. The upper tunnel is 359 ft. above, and has a length of 360 ft. The copper vein has been drifted on N. 156 ft. and S. 182 ft. The upper tunnel runs through the quartz vein 67 ft. without striking the western wall. A drift has been run N. 40 ft. and S. 30 ft. From the south drift a winze has been sunk 56 ft. There are two cross-cuts on the vein from the north drift, 23 and 47 ft., without reaching the western wall. From the south drift two other cross-cuts have been run, respectively 38 and 49 ft. long. In places the decomposed ore is replaced by hard quartz, carrying iron sulphurets. The value of the ore is about equally distributed between gold and silver. On the same mine to the south and 400 ft. above, a shaft has been sunk 65 ft. on the vein. At this point the vein is 24 ft. wide. This is perhaps the largest ore deposit in the county, being traceable for over 7,000 ft. See our VIIIth Report, pp. 364 to 365. Goleta Mining Company, 330 Pine Street, San Francisco, owners.

Montecito Mine (Quartz).—It lies 6 miles N.E. of Lundy, and joins the Goleta on the south. On this claim two tunnels have been run, 33 and 80 ft. long, respectively, cross-cutting the vein, but without reaching the western wall. A shaft has been sunk 40 ft. The character of the ore is the same as the Goleta. 1). E. Jones, of Lundy, Superintendent.

Native Wonder and Mono Queen Claims (Quartz). —These properties were discovered the past year and have been only slightly developed. The Native Wonder is situated on the north side of a steep canon, west of Mono Lake, while the Mono Queen is opposite, on the south side of the cation. The Native Wonder runs nearly E. and W., and has been opened by a short drift showing a vein 18 in. in thickness. The Mono Queen is a blanket vein, and has been opened by a tunnel 70 ft. long. The ore is honeycombed, and is said to be high grade. E. C. Mattly, of Mono Lake, owner.

Spartan Mine (Quartz).—This mine lies S. of that part of the Sterling Company's mine which was formerly known as the Detroit Copper Mine. Two tunnels have been run to cross-cut the vein. The upper is 120 ft. long, of which 90 ft. is in mineralized vein matter. The other tunnel, 180 ft. below, has at present a length of 245 ft., and is being run through limestone. The vein matter is partly a mineralized limestone and partly a porphyry. M. R. Burns, of Lundy, owner.

Sterling (Detroit Copper). Mine (Quartz).—The property of the Sterling Company lies about 6 miles N.E. of Lundy. One claim lies north of the Goleta, and on the same ore body, and the other south of the Montecito. The claim on the north has been opened by a shaft 115 ft. deep. That on the south was formerly known as the Detroit Copper Mine, and was described in our VIIIth Report, pp. 364 to 365. In past years a large amount of work was done on this mine in an attempt to extract copper from an E. and W. vein. Sterling Mining Company, No.330 Pine Street, San Francisco, owners; D. E. Jones, of Lundy, Superintendent.

Interpretive sign at Fremont Peak.

Photograph taken 28-Apr-07.

This interpretive sign is at the upper parking lot, near the trailhead for the peak trail.

Fremont Peak was called Gavilan Peak in early Spanish times, Gavilan in English meaning hawk. In 1846, Capt. John Charles Fremont brevet captain of topographical engineers of the United States Army, was conducting a survey and exploring expedition in Oregon and California. His presence with an armed force in the settled area was objected to by Prefect Manuel Castro and General Jose Castro and the California authorities. He was ordered to leave. Instead Fremont prepared to resist this request. He ascended Gavilan Peak where he built a fort of logs. A sapling was cut for a flagpole and on March 6, 1846, Fremont raised the flag of the United States. Castro had his forces below at San Juan Bautista. But before any attack was made, Fremont's flagpole blew down on the afternoon of March 9. Fremont taking this as a bad omen broke camp in the night and moved on toward the San Joaquin. So open battle was avoided. After this episode Gavilan Peak again became the meeting place for hawks.
Elevation 3169 feet.

Ooops …

Photograph taken July 15, 2005.

We turned off of Highway 178 at what I now think was Soldier Wells, and followed a little road in the direction of Robber's Roost. It was a good little road, but there were no recent tire tracks. The reason why there were no tire tracks on the little road became obvious when we arrived at Robbers Roost. In the middle of the road was a red stick. On our side it said nothing. But the other side, "Route Closed." After taking the photograph, we drive around the sign. There was no way I was going to drive all the way back to Highway 178, and then try to find a route that was not closed.

Robber's Roost was used by the robber Tiburcio Vasquez from about 1850 to 1874. He and his gang robbed stages and freight wagons carrying gold ores and bullion from the mines of the Eastern Sierra to Los Angeles and Bakersfield. As a defense against his robbery the Cerro Gordo mines made 300 pound silver balls that couldn't be carried on horseback.

Old cars protect the bank from erosion along Lewis Creek.

Photograph taken 4-Feb-06.

At Lonoak, Lonoak Road crosses Lewis Creek and passes between Monterey and San Benito Counties. Here old cars have been placed along the creek banks to reduce erosion.

I have some photos of Lewis Creek a little further upstream that show a broad alluviated channel with a small stream in the middle, a sign that the stream is quite underfit, i.e., the sediment load far exceeds the carrying capacity of the stream. Lewis Creek drains a fairly large area that includes Priest Valley, following the San Andreas Fault Zone from there to this location in Lonoak. The combination of a large drainage area, steep topography, and ground-up rock in the fault zone, probably yields some high flood waters with large sediment loads on occasion, leading the local residents to try embedding the autos in the creek banks to reduce erosion.

Dutton Hotel at Jolon

Photograph taken 6-Oct-06.

In 1849, Antonio Ramirez built a small adobe on the El Camino Real, near the site of the ancient Indian village, Holamna. As a main artery to California's gold fields, the El Camino Real brought many travelers past Ramirez's place. He transformed his adobe into an inn and stage stop and soon enjoyed a brisk business.

Eventually, the Inn became the nucleus of the town of Jolon. Ramirez sold the building in 1871 and it changed hands three more times before it was purchased by Lt. George Dutton and Capt. Thomas Tidball in 1876. Dutton, who became the sole owner in 1878, added a second story of adobe and wood frame structures at either end. Jolon's first post office was located at the Inn, and Dutton added a store and saloon. The saloon boasted a huge fireplace, 6 or 8 poker tables, and an ornate bar which came around the Horn.

By 1876, Jolon had grown into a thriving town serving the Los Burros Mines, surrounding ranches, and many travelers. However, when the railroad came to King City in 1886 traffic followed the railroad, and the old Camino Real fell into disuse. Soon after, the Los Burros Mines gave out as well, and business at the Dutton died down.

William Randolph Hearst purchased the property in 1929 and removed the Dutton's outbuildings as well as many other Jolon structures. In 1940, the U. S. Army acquired the property, and the adobe was used as a bivouac area. Vandalism and exposure to the elements finally destroyed the building, leaving only an adobe ruin. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic places in 1976.

Tidball Store at Jolon

Photograph taken 6-Oct-06.

In 1876, Capt. Thomas Tidball, a Civil War veteran and native of Pennsylvania opened a store in Jolon with his former military friend, George Dutton. Around 1878, the partnership was dissolved and Capt. Tidball moved his business a quarter mile south to a small adobe building constructed by the Pacific Coast Stage Company as a stopover for stage drivers. Incorporating parts of the original adobe, he built a two story redwood structure in the New England tradition. There he established a hotel, a general store, post office, livery stable and saloon. Tidball's establishment served miners, settlers and local Indians.

Tidball sold his business to the Ganoung brothers in 1900. They in turn sold it to the Duck family in 1913 for $1,500 in gold. The Duck family operated the store for six years.

Meanwhile the town's populaton dwindled away as King City became southern Monterey County's major center of trade. Ramona Duck Sutfin continued to operate the store off and on. It became the first service station in the area during the 1920's. Fire damaged the building in 1972 and it was closed. In 1978, Mrs. Sutfin deeded the store to the San Antonio Valley Historical Association who in turn deeded it to Monterey County. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic placed in 1976.

An older house in Bishop

Photograph taken July 17, 2005.

In Bishop, on a sunny summer Sunday morning, we walked from our motel to downtown for breakfast. Along the way, I noticed the sun shining on this older house set back from the main street of Bishop. It still looks pretty good, though at one time it must have been someone's beautiful Owens Valley mansion.

Landmark for Owens Lake Silver-Lead Furnace.

Photograph taken July 16, 2005.

Owens Lake Silver-Lead Furnace

The Owens Lake Silver-Lead furnace and mill was built here by Col. Sherman Stevens in 1869 and used until March 1874. James Brady assumed its operation in 1870 for the Silver-Lead Company and built the town of Swansea. During the next five years the output of this furnace and another at Cerro Gordo was around 150 bars of silver every 24 hours, each weighing 83 pounds.

The town consisted of 5 grocery stores, 3 restaurants, pool hall, barber shop, beauty shop, mortuary, bowling alley, 3 service stations, several garages, 2 used car lots, church, power plant, several saloons, several tourist cabins, and numerous residences. This is the remains of the Cross Roads Mercantile Co., later renamed Schwanbeck's, the most prominent business of the community. During this time the store also served as a U.S. Post Office. Operation of store continued until 1973."

Rejuvenated Hot Spring After San Simeon Earthquake.

Photograph taken December 26, 2003.

The warm water has the rotten-egg smell typical of hot springs. State water officials said the sulfurous water does not pose a public health threat but may be harmful to the Salinas River ecosystem. In addition to sulfur, the water could contain other dissolved minerals that could be toxic to fish. The warm temperature of the water may also be harmful. The water was being channeled into the city's storm drain system, which eventually empties into the Salinas River.

When I first saw the rejuvenated hot spring, Friday, 26 December 2003, a hole about 10 feet deep and 30 feet in diameter had been dug in the parking lot. Various approaches to pumping out the water were being tried. A pump was lowered part way into the pit, but several days later it had been removed. City officials have not figured out a way to stop the flow.

Rejuvenated Hot Spring After San Simeon Earthquake.

Photograph taken December 26, 2003.

A magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck the central California coast on December 22, 2003 at 11:15:56 am (PST). The event was located 11 km NE of San Simeon, and 39 km WNW of Paso Robles, where the brunt of the damage and casualties occurred. Two deaths occurred due to a building collapse in Paso Robles.

The magnitude 6.5 temblor ruptured a hot springs aquifer and as much as 1,000 gallons per minute of sulfurous water is pouring out of the ground at the City Hall parking lot.

The rupture was caused by the quake because it started the same day. It first appeared as a steaming spring about 4 inches high and 24 inches in diameter in the Paso Robles City Hall Parking lot (P. Rafferty, pers. comm.).

Plaque about Benitoite.

Photograph taken 4-Feb-06.

Benitoite was discovered on February 22, 1907 by James Marshall Couch while prospecting for quicksilver on a fifty dollar grubstake for shares from R. W. Dallas and Tom Sanders. On July 30, 1907, mineralogy professor George D. Louderback identified it as a new mineral species, Barium Titanium Silicate (BaTiSi3O9). He named it Benitoite after the river, county and nearby mountain range. The gem-quality crystal combines the color of a sapphire with the fire of a diamond. It looks like two studdy triangular pyramids attached at their bases; its shape is unique. It flouresces a bright deep-sky blue under ultraviolet light. Benitoite in gem quality occurs nowhere else in the world. It is assopciated with other rare minerals such as Fresnoite, Joaquinite, Natrolite, and Neptunite. They formed in fractures of a serpentine rock from hydrothermal solutions. Just how such solutions occurred and what other conditions caused the crystallization of these rare minerals is still not well understood. Benitoite was declared the official California state gem on October 1, 1985.

Gudde (1969) notes at least fifty locations, lakes, and streams in California with a reference to bitterness of the water. "Amargosa" also refers to bitterness of the water, although modern Spanish uses "amargo" or "amargado" for the adjective "bitter." The location of Bitterwater Lake is also occupied by La Laguna Vieja Rancho.

This is one of two creeks named San Lorenzo in California. The other is in Alameda County. There is also a San Lorenzo River in Santa Cruz County.

This San Lorenzo Creek drains Peachtree Valley in the central Coast Ranges. Lewis Creek is a tributary, even though it drains a larger area. For most of its course San Lorenzo Creek flows northwest until it passes Lewis Creek, and then turns southwest, joining the Salinas River just south of King City.

A little farther north, at Ragged Point, the coastal plain disappears and is replaced by steep cliffs plunging into the sea. The fault associated with the 22 December 2003 San Simeon 6.5 M earthquake, the Oceanic - Huasna fault passes from land to sea just south of Ragged Point.
