1. Hydraulic Mining Marker
Inscription.  Hydraulic mining using monitors was popular by large mining operations. More material could be processed daily for significantly less cost and higher profitability than other methods. Monitors larger than this one were common at the Malakoff Diggings near Nevada City and throughout the Mother Lode. A much smaller monitor was reportedly used to tunnel mines here in the Madera County foothills.
Erected 2016 by Grub Gulch Chapter 41-49 E Clampus Vitus.
