Lost Mines of the Ochoco Gold Rush
In this adventure I take you along as I explore the heart of the mining district that grew up during the brief gold rush in the Ochoco Mountains of Central Oregon. Let’s see what evidence we can uncover while exploring the area where once was a thriving mining community. During the gold rush this area had hotels, general store, community hall, and massive mining camps and mine structures. The miners camped throughout the valley and prospected all over the surrounding hills. Most of the major mining activity was hardrock mining operations with extensive tunnels blasted throughout the surrounding mountains. The ore was brought down to ore processing plants along the creek at the bottom of the valley.
