2017 - Trip Report - Dale Mining District

Dale Mining District

Friday-Sunday, June 2-4

Leader: Nelson Miller

Photos: Bill & Julie Smith

We explored the Dale Mining District, east of 29 Palms and visited the Old Dale and New Dale townsites, a couple of mill sites, and a bunch different mines and mill sites. There were large structures still standing at several of these sites. Most of the mining in the Dale District occurred from 1883 into the 1920’s. Mines of the High Desert, by Ronald Dean Miller, describes the mines, people and history of this mining district.             ~ Nelson
