This district is in the Clipper Mountains in east-central San Bernardino county about five miles northwest of Danby. Gold was discovered here in 1915, and there was considerable activity for a few years following. Several wide gold-bearing quartz-calcite veins occur in fault zones in volcanic rocks of Miocene age. The ore-bearing zones are as much as 50 feet thick and 1500 feet long. The principal sources of gold have been the Clipper Mountain, Gold Reef, and Tom Reed mines.
