ISLAND MOUNTAIN - Probably inaccessible by road

 A volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposit within Island Mountain was mined after rail service became available. Between 1915 and 1930, 4,100 tons of copper, 140,000 ounces of silver and 8,600 ounces of gold were mined.Minerals identified within the ore body include chalcanthite, chalcopyrite, copiapite, goslarite, pyrite, and pyrrhotite. Volcanic rock was quarried from Island Mountain by Northwestern Pacific Railroad for heavy riprap used as far away as Humboldt Bay.

Status: There are two gates on the Island Mountain Road, there used to be three, one is locked and you need a key or the combination.

SOUTH FORK TRINITY RIVER

 Lenses of coarsely crystalline limestone are common in the Abrams schist and in the Chanchelulla formation in the eastern part of the county. In the region along the South Fork of Trinity River a series of limestone lenses once thought to be Devonian extends for many miles from the head of the river to Humboldt County near Willow Creek

An occurrence of Rosenhahnite (type locality) 2.9 miles SSE of Pieta, along the E bank of the Russian River near Highway 101, 5 miles N of Cloverdale. NOTE: The TL of Rosenhahnite should be Pieta since that town is closer by ½ than Cloverdale, which is in another county as well. Mineralization is found in Franciscan rocks in the Russian River.

GOLD in California

The gold is there because, 400 million years ago, California was at the bottom of the sea. Underwater volcanoes spewed out minerals rich in gold, which were later carried into rivers.
