Rhonda Mine

Back in 2007, a friend told us to check out this semi-modern gold mill tucked away in a seldom-visited canyon of the Mojave Desert. The mill with most of the equipment still there was a great find.

Up on a high and steep slope, the Rhonda mill looks like an old mine that was re-worked in the 1960s and 70s. There was never a road here, so all the equipment was brought in on the backs of mules. That was quite an achievement.
