History and Previous Exploration/Development Efforts
The Bayhorse Silver Mine composed of 21 unpatented and three patented claims (480 acres) operated from 1920-1925. Underground development consisted of a 500 foot drift that was driven on a mineralized structure. The drift followed the vein up approximately 80 feet and a large stope was excavated. In 1983, Cash Industries ran a drift on the same level as the stope, 485 feet in to the excavated area. Sunshine Mining Company and Homestake Mining Company conducted exploration on the property until from 1980-1984. The property has been dormant since 1984.
