Carlyle Mine

Alysia and I met up with my buddy James to do a little desert mine exploring back in 1998. We headed out to the Carlyle mine (also known as the Carlysle).

First discovered in 1902, it was most active in the late 1930s. Gold and silver was mined by three adits and has a few interesting sections to it. Not much remains of the mill or the tramway.

The photo quality isn’t good – the first set of photos are film scans from 1998. I returned from some more shots in 2013.
