Description
Photograph of an exterior view of the Consolidated Gold Mine in Mojave, ca.1900. The large, wooden mine building is installed on the side of a hill at center. It is only one story high in most places, but it extends from the base of a small basin to the top of the surrounding hill. There are several small square windows cut into the walls. At right are four large cylindrical containers, and another is mounted on a wooden platform at center. There is a white-washed wooden house on the side of a hill in the background at right, and a line of utility poles runs along the top of the hills. The hills are rocky and covered with small desert plants. The mine was also known as the Exposed Treasure Mine.
