New Coso Mining District


A Au-Ag-Cu-Pb-U-Mo-Hg mining area located in secs. 7, 8, 14 & 20, T22S, R39E, MDM, 15 miles NE of Little Lake, and partially on the China Lake Naval Ordnance Test Station.

In the early summer of 1860 Dr. Darwin French and companions, entering from the west, initiated exploration of the Coso Springs and Darwin Wash areas, ultimately penetrating as far east in Death Valley as Furnace Creek Wash, which they are credited with naming. Among the other accomplishments of this group was the discovery of ore near Coso, the creation in the spring of 1860 of the Coso Mining District, and the formation by some of the French party of the Coso Gold and Silver Mining Company. (National Park Service - http://www.nps.gov/history/history/online_books/deva/contents.htm)

Mineralization is in part deposits of cinnabar in hot spring sinters. Cinnabar and metacinnabar line fractures in the sinter fumaroles and coat grains and fragments of opal. Most cinnabar is fine-grained, without crystal form, and is rarely abundant enough to give more than a pink tinge to the enclosing rock. Chloride of mercury of unknown composition is present. Obsidian in the district contains a suite of species.
