There is a road right to the cabin. located 15 miles from Barstow, CA in the Coolgardie mining district. This stays cool in the summer and warmer in the winter. Built in 1932 during the Depression Era. About May 1900, placer gold was discovered in shallow gravel 20 miles north of Barstow by Dick Duncan. Duncan was one of the co-discoverers of gold at Kramer about this same time. He named his discovery the Black Nugget after a famous mine in South Africa. Another claim, the Coolgardie, was named after a famous Australian gold camp. In August 1900, ten men were operating 2 dry-placer machines at Black Nugget. In 1909, Coolgardie was described as “a small mining settlement, the cabins of the miners scattered over. In 1911 it was stated $100,000 in gold (period values) had been taken from the rich place at Coolgardie. This is a dry-placer mining district in western San Bernardino County about 15 miles northwest of Barstow. The principal operator was the Cool Gardie Mining Company, which operated a a battery of gasoline- powered dry washers. Several two-man operations employed single dry washers or rockers. Coolgardie gold placers shows that they are richer and of greater area than they generally assumed, a gentleman who arrived In Los Angeles this week and who has just been all over the Coolgardie informing the Mining Review that less than one third of the placer ground had been located. Every foot of the 10,000 acres is as rich as the ground which is now being worked, and has produced $6000 in the last few months. If sluiced all the fine gold, which Is mostly lost In dry washing could be saved. If water could obtained for sluicing it is evident from the gold now being taken out by dry washing.
