Gold Mines - Death Valley:

Lost Burro Gold Mine

In 1907 Bert Shively's burro decided he'd had it and went to get himself lost. Bert caught up with him in a remote canyon and picked up a rock to get his attention. He never threw the rock at the animal, it was laced with gold. The mine was worked off and on through the decades according to the price of gold up into the 1970s. No one seems to know what happened to the burro.
