History

The Red Rover Mine, one of the oldest mines in Los Angeles County, was originally a land grant to the Spanish.  By 1894, the California State Mining Bureau deemed the Red Rover the most productive mine in the district.   Henry T. Gage, Governor of California from 1899-1903, once owned the mine.

The mine was once known as the Golden Lady mine, an endearing name for one of the highest-producing mines ever in Southern California.   In its working days, the mine had six shafts, varying between 100 and 650 feet deep, most of which are now filled in. 

 

 

 

President Roosevelt shut down mining operations nationwide at the beginning of World War II.  Red Rover has remained dormant until now.

Now, we have concluded that the price of gold has made the expected profitability of the mine so profound that the reopening of the mine can no longer be put off.

Location

The Red Rover Mine is located in Los Angeles County about 55 miles north of the City of Los Angeles.  The site is approximately four miles northwest of the city of Acton, less than a mile north of the Antelope Valley Freeway.  The claims cover approximately seventy acres in a developed area of single-family houses and small ranches.

The site is owned by the United States government and is managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”).
