Camptonville, Yuba County, PO 45 miles north east of Marysville. A mining town on Oregon Creek, a branch of the Middle Yuba River, on the stage road leading from the Pacific Railroad at Colfax through Nevada and North San Juan to Downieville. It is also connected by stage with Marysville. Extensive gravel ranges are in the vicinity, upon one of which the town is built, and these have been largely mined by the hydraulic process, but a want of sufficient water retards operations. The locality is healthy, the site pleasant, and mineral resources unlimited but without abundant water and other appliances which only well directed capital can command, no mining town can prosper.

Cerro Gordo, Inyo County, PO 40 miles south east of Independence, on Buena Vista Mountain, one of the Inyo range which borders Owens Lake and valley on the east, is a prosperous mining town. The section of country in which it is located is desolate and barren, but numerous veins of argentiferous galena redeem the desert, and make it the chosen home of man.

The mines were discovered in 1865 by some Mexicans, who demonstrated in a simple manner that the ores could be smelted with profit. The Union, and the Santa Maria are the principal mines, the former furnishing the ore that is smelted in the furnaces of Cerro Gordo, the latter sending its ore to the furnaces at Swansea, on the shore of Owens lake. These several furnaces produce lead bullion in large quantities, from twenty to forty thousand pounds daily, which is transported by steamer across the lake, then by wagons to San Fernando, about 200 miles, where it is taken on cars via Los Angeles to San Pedro, for shipment to San Francisco for separating and refining. The Los Angeles and Independence Railroad, now proposed, called for by the large business of Cerro Gordo, will greatly facilitate the business of this rich mineral region.
