Round Lake Mine
In 1935, the Ready Bullion Company of Sacramento built a second mill at a cost of $100,000. A 400 foot incline shaft was built to reach under the lake. Unfortunately the mill and shaft timbers burned to the ground shortly after they were built and the venture was abandoned. The remains of the mill are what you see here.
