Come explore the curiosity of the Chemehueyis Mines, a unique site listed as a past producer in the mine registry. Despite the lack of signs of ore bins, carts, or camps indicating production beyond exploration, over 20 prospects with various ore samples strewn about the surface attest to the site's potential. Evidence of both lode and placer suggests that this site held significant value, or at least all the indicators, so why was it abandoned? Were the weights too low to incentivize expansion, or were the efforts focused on the war with dreams of returning to a golden retirement like so many mines of their time?
