 Panamint, Inyo County California

Panamint, Inyo County, PO 70 miles south east of Independence, and 220 miles northeast of Los Angeles, is a newly organized mining district which promises to develop great wealth. The locality of the town is in Surprise Canon, a deep chasm, among high, barren and precipitous mountains, of difficult access and unpleasant habitation.

One large vein has been discovered, upon which "Jacob's Wonder," "Stewart's Wonder," and other claims are located. These are the property of the Surprise Valley Mill and Water Company, and are in course of development, employing some 300 men. The place is reached by stage from Bakersfield and from Los Angeles. The mines are noticed in the article on minerals.

One paper, the Panamint News, is published tri-weekly.
