"Gold, Silver"

"Location. The Warm Springs District is located at Ashdown in N. W. Humboldt Co., on the Oregon boundary. Winnemucca on the S. P. R. R. and W. P. R. R. is 120 m. S. E. The district was formerly divided into the Pueblo District on the N. and the Vicksburg District on the S."

"History. The district was located in 1863. A small mill built in 1864 was burned by the Indians. The Pine Forest Gold M. Co's. mill made the largest production in Humboldt Co. in 1905 and operated intermittently there after. The Ashdown Gold M. Co. had a new mill under construction in 1919."

"Geology. According to Stretch, the country rocks are mica and clay slates in truded by a core of porphyry and granite which forms the central axis of the mountains, and flanked on the W. by basalt. The early ores were mainly silver ores in quartz gangue, sometimes with considerable copper."
