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.
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.
