Comments:

Four miles upstream from Pioneerville, a Mr. Wells and 75 men began a mining operation called The Golden Age Mine and the camp was called Golden Age Camp. During the early 1900s the town had two mills, a dozen houses, to miner’s bunkhouses with recreation hall and a two-story hotel. The Diana School was soon constructed. The two mills turned out about $3000 in gold per day.

Remains:

This operation was cut short when the mine shafts began to be flooded with water from Grimes Creek and had to be abandoned. There are still a few mining remnants.
