North Fork Mine - Headframe

The North Fork Mine was worked from 1875 to the 1930’s with a 13 degree shaft 1000′ long and a crosscut 1000′ long and 3 levels of inclines producing up to $6000 a week, over 50,000 oz of gold. All historic mining equipment has been donated to Forest City. In 2004 modern electrical service was brought in and mining resumed. It is estimated that 100,000 tons of high grade ore still remain. In 2008 the Shasta Gold Corp posted a page indicating their ownership and future plans to drill the area in hopes of ore equaling the nearby Sixteen to One. Current status is unknown.
