The 16 to 1 Mine Alleghany California

Last year we visited the 16 to 1 mine in Alleghany California. Mine operator Mike Miller headed a tour for members of the Sierra County Planning Commision and invited guests.
Thought you might enjoy the pictures from the tour. By the way some really early bottles have been recovered from the 16 to 1 property and surrounding area.
