Dave,

What were the names of the 4 mines we visited ? Best as I can tell in the order we visited, from the pictures:
  • Ranchita
  • Golden Sugar
  • Golden Chariot
  • Ready Relief
So we didn't make the swim through the Hubbard then ?

Julian, CA Gold Mines

http://www.us-mining.com/california/julian/gold-mines

Golden Chariot mine is for sale (lock/stock/barrel) too:

The Golden Chariot Mine was originally patented by gold miner George Valentine King during the original gold rush in the 1870′s. It is the 2nd most productive in the Julian area. It is a wonderful piece of mining history and operated until 2002 when the Pines Fire claimed some of the outbuildings. The founding partner of Banner Mines Inc passed away in 2003 and other partners cannot continue to operate the mine. Property, building and equipment are included in sale.
So for a cool $250K, you can own your own gold mine and get shafted .... :roll: :lol:

Your order was correct. Time ran out on Saturday and we didn't have time for the last mine. Next time. Let us know if you put an offer in on the Golden Chariot!
