Eastern Mojave Vegetation New Trail Mine, San Bernardino County, California.

Query: G.N.I.S.

Mine in Mojave National Preserve, in the Ivanpah Mountains, south of Kokoweef Peak, and north of the Morning Star Mine.

On February 27, 2001, rangers acting on a citizen’s tip investigated suspicious activity at two cabins at the New Trail Mine site. Four people were contacted, and rangers determined that they’d spent the night at the cabins. They were released after a consent search of their vehicle. A subsequent check of the cabins revealed the remnants of a meth lab and evidence that the drug had recently been cooked up there. The county’s clandestine lab team was brought in and found $60,000 worth of processed meth oil hidden at the site. The four people that rangers had contacted there were linked to the lab. One of them – William Demarest – was tried and convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine. On October 15 2003, Demarest was sentenced to 13 years in prison.
