FOOLS GULCH


: Not too far from Stanton, Octave, Weaver, and Congress. REMAINS: Mine markings. The Planet-Saturn mining company built a 75-ton capacity mill here in 1897 and there were over 140 men working at the site. The post office opened in 1898 and a town of 400 followed. When the company backer went bankrupt in 1905, the operation closed only to be opened again in 1938. Operations continued until 1942 and $1,555,000 in gold was produced the second time as compared to $100,000 the first. When the gold mines were ordered closed, this town ended. Makes one wonder if there is still any gold left.
