[1916 Mountaineer Mine. Nevada City, California Real Photo Post Card].
Real photo postcard “Made for R.J. Bennetts Nevada City, Cal.” handwritten and postmarked in this California town established during the Gold Rush of 1849. An online resource notes “The Mountaineer Mine was operated at least as early as 1880, with the vein worked prior to that. The Mountaineer Vein was worked extensively for about 15 years prior to approximately 1896 and at intervals thereafter until either 1913 or 1916. It is not known if the mine was in production subsequent to 1913 or 1916, the last years of operation reported by MacBoyle (1919).”
