Gold Pours Again at Jerritt Mine
May 2009 by Associated Press
Yukon-Nevada received permission last month from the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection to restart the mill, after the agency determined the company met environmental standards.
In August 1862, prospectors from Walla Walla, Washington, led by George Grimes, discovered gold near the present townsite of Pioneer City. Grimes was killed by Indians shortly after the discovery. The remaining argonauts retreated to Walla Walla. On October 10, 1862, 52 men returned to Grimes Creek. They built a fort and several cabins before continuing their quest for gold.
I have figured out over the years that the winning combination is hard work, persistence, knowledge, and a little luck. This leads me to describe one of my best finds ever, a “honey hole” of placer gold, if you will.
We soon found that our discovery post and other claim markers were gone and replaced with new posts and a notice of location with an earlier date than had been on our notice of location.
