Back in 2003, Alysia and I met up with my dad, Brad, and friends to go hunt for a remote old mine out in the Mojave desert. There were several quartz veins here worked for gold as late as the 1950s. The mines aren’t deep but don’t seem to be played out either. I’d bet there is some gold still here. The area is inside of wilderness now and off-limits to mining. We had a great day out there.
