Several gold mines and prospects exist on the west slope of the White Mountains in northern Inyo County a few miles northeast of Big Pine and southeast of Bishop. The deposits consist of narrow quartz veins in Paleozoic metasediments cut by granitic dikes. The ore contains free gold, pyrite, and varying amounts of other sulfides.
