sulfur mine
Sulfur mine east of - Big Pine, CA

There is more than anyone would ever want to know about these two sulphur deposits in the rather-obscure California Journal of Mines and Geology, Oct. 1938. Both areas are on the west slope of the Last Chance Range: Crater Group is the biggest with 6 claims; another 12 claims are 1.5 miles east of the first group.

In June 1932, various leasers worked the claims and shipped about 42,000 tons of high-grade ore to Los Angeles. Purity was 75-80%. Owners included Sanger and Albertoli of Big Pine, and the Smith Brothers of L.A., among others.

Big Pine - Eureka Valley Sulphur Mines
Eureka Valley Sulphur mines, near Big Pine, will resume operation in the near future, it is reported, with R. E. Ketching in charge. The product will be marketed by Dan Nord and Art Ronchausen. County road equipment has started work on the road between the sulfur mines and Oasis. Another projected road would run from Big Pine through Eureka Valley to Zurich, past the talc and sulphur mines to Sand Canyon and into Death Valley via Scotty's Castle.
