Jack Keane found gold in this area of the Funeral Mountains in 1903. The ore was of high quality and the mine was sold for $150,000 before any development began. The peak years, 1907 through 1911, the mine processed nearly 74,000 tons of gold, silver and lead ore paying roughly $9.22 a ton. Throughout the years from the discovery of the mine, 1903 to 1916 production totaled $1,100,000.
