In August of 1912 the mine closed down and the Inyo paper announced that it had worked out its ore bodies. In 1914, after being sold, the mine was operating again, but it closed in 1916. In 1935 another attempt at revival came with a new company that reworked old mill tailings by cyanide. In 1937 it was sold, and the old stamps were dismantled and removed. he tramway had deteriorated beyond repair. In 1938 it was sold again, and in 1940 the aerial tramway refurbished, machinery repaired and plans were announced to put a new mill in. The mill was almost completed by July, but in 1942 everything was hauled to another site. It has been idle since that time and in the 1970s it was purchased by the National Park Service.
