There are several small gold mines and prospects in an area known as the Globe mining district in central Tulare County about 15 miles east of Porterville. Most of the prospects are in the vicinity of Cow Mountain on the north side of the Tule River Indian Reservation or a few miles to the west. There was some prospecting here in the early 1900s, but apparently little or nothing has been done since. The deposits consist of shallow quartz veins in granite that contain fairly abundant pyrite and small amounts of free gold.
