My grandfather currently owns the Adams claims. My family worked side by side with the Adams family for decades. My great grand parents ran the mines lodge and prepared meals for the miners on site. My grandfather designed and fabricated much of the mine equipment used a lot of which is still on site today. My family started working on the mine in the 30's with Homer and Verne and then finaly Eva Adams. My grandfather leased the claim from Eva for over a decade before she passed away. He since staked it and now owns the claims himself.
Anyway because of medical issues and age he wants to sell the mine ASAP.
Upon finding your picture I would like to ask permission to use it to add to our sale site.

Thank you.

Hello, Brian! Thanks for visiting our digital collections. Unfortunately, we don't have any current info on the mine, so we don't know if it's still for sale.
