Keane Wonder Mine Mill

The Keane Wonder Mine (Death Valley) was discovered by Jack Keane in the early 1900’s along the Chloride Cliffs below Chloride City. In 1906 investors made the mine a major gold mine and one of the most productive in Death Valley. Gold mining was ceased when Hoover made Death Valley a National Monument.

The Mill ruins still exist (pin location) in addition to a large tramway which runs up the side of the mountain to the mine which is at 36.681258, -116.901163. The National Park Service has [highlight]closed the entire area[/highlight] due to concerns of mine cave ins, hazardous chemicals and unsafe structures.
