Bighorn Mine

Photo of the Bighorn Mine gold mine in the San Gabriel Mountains
Along the rugged, nearly vertical face of Mount Baden-Powell, Tom Vincent discovered the gold-bearing quartz vein in 1895 while hunting Bighorn sheep. He worked it a bit but didn't have enough money to develop the mine and soon sold it off. There was gold deep within the mountain, however, through the years it never recovered costs to bring it out.
