REMAINS: Numerous mines litter the canyons up to the site
|North of lonely town of Beveridge lies the Keynot group of claims. There were a total of seven made through the northern canyon ridge and they held the record for the greatest production in the Beveridge district. The tunnels ran in length from 150-750 feet long and the deepest mine went down 1,800 ft. Pack mules carried the ore to a 5 stamp mill in Beveridge Canyon(Hahn's Canyon). Among the mines still strewn here is the Burgess Mine(Iron Sides) with nineteen claims. The shaft was 156 ft. deep, 700 ft. long and had 2000 ft. drifts. A gasoline hoist and compressor were implemented here on top of the Inyo crest which, provides an awe inspiring view of the Sierra Nevadas. That is, if you make it. Submitted by: Nick Walrath
