In 2010, I decided to return to this small mine that I had visited ten years ago. It is still a pleasant and quiet hike out to this little remote valley. I had come out here before to see a small and seldom visited miner’s cabin. Now, I wanted to see if it was still standing.
The Bald Peak Mine (also known as the CB Mine) was probably built in the 1930s Depression era, but I found signs that there was a camp here long before that time. Information on the mine is hard to find but it looks like it was a gold mine. One report states that the white rock on the hillside is a talc deposit. It does look like one from a distance, but I doubt think it is talc. The main mine is across the canyon and consists of some small workings with a steep rail tramway down to an ore bin.
Sadly, sometime between 2000 and 2010, the cabin blew down.
