1. The Golden Gate Mine Marker
Inscription. The mine was discovered in 1903 and was owned and operated by various owners until 1939 when it ceased operations.

The total amount of bullion taken from this site is unknown. However, one owner did ship $12,000.00 in 1912. The gold vein was rather illusive and required a great deal of effort to follow. The main workings were on the north side of Golden Gate Peak and a tram brought the ore to the mill. It is said that when the crusher and the ten stamp mill were operating you could hear it on the east side of Antelope Valley, several miles away.
 
Erected 1991 by E Clampus Vitus, Bodie Chapter No. 64.
