Gold has been recovered from the Tehachapi Mountains a few miles south of the town of that name in south-central Kern County. Most of it came from the Pine Tree mine, which was active from 1876 to 1907 and had a reported total production of $250,000. The gold occurs in faulted and sheared quartz veins in granitic rocks. Scheelite also occurs locally in the quartz veins.
