Hornsilver Giant Mine

The Hornsilver is a fairly remote silver mine and camp. It was a good producer early on and had its ore hauled to a local mill, but like most mines, was worked only intermittently.

The original road to the camp is long over-grown and washed away. We tried heading up it, but to no avail. Instead, we came down from the top which is a steep off trail scramble. It is an interesting, but small site. I’m sure there is more to be found; hidden in the undergrowth. We will have to return sometime.
