Survey number:      Owner:      Date of discovery:

December 12, 1896; “THE 20 STAMP MILL belonging to Henry and Whipple will be in operation in Garlock by the 20th of the month.” – The Bakersfield Californian

August 2, 1897: “THE HENRY TEN STAMP MILL at Garlock Is running on ore from the Skookum mine, which will average $75 per ton.” – The Herald

October 18, 1897: “THE HENRY MILLING COMPANY contemplates putting in a concentrator of an improved fashion in the near future. “ — The  Herald

November 4, 1897: “THE RAND MINES are seven in number, Rand, Olympus, Trilby, Yellow Aster, Nancy Hanks, California, and Big Horse.  The principal ones so far developed are the Rand, Olympus, Trilby, and Yellow Aster.  Nearly all the work has been done on these four and a force of men is now working on each.  The men who own these mines have not worked together always harmoniously, but their differences have not stopped work, and they now have fifty-one men on the pay roll.  It is understood that a settlement of their difficulties was about accomplished last week, which included the purchase of Mr. Reddy’s interest by the other partners, but at the last minute some unforeseen difficulties arose which for a time at least will delay the settlement.

“The Rand group is doubtless the richest deposit of mineral in this camp and also the most extensive.  A great deal of money has been expended in developing the mines, making roads, building chutes, laying car tracks, and in the purchase of cars, buckets, and mining machinery.  All this and much more besides has been taken from the mines.  At the present they are shipping about twenty four tones per day to Garlock, and keep both the Visalia, and Henry mills running constantly.  If everything else in the district was to fall, there is plenty of material in the Rand Group and Rand Hill to make a good town of Randsburg.” -  The Los Angeles Daily Times

November 08, 1897: “The Henry Milling company of Randsburg contemplates putting in a concentrator of an improved fashion in the near future.” –The Herald

May 20, 1898: “THE RAND MOUNTAIN: The ore from the Rand, which is milled at Garlock by the Henry, Garlock, and Visalia mills, averages considerably over $30 to the ton. Plans are now being drawn for a big mill to be part of the Yellow Aster plant.  Thirty stamps will be the first capacity of the mill, and steam power will be used.   It will be arranged to add more stamps up to 100 as that number can be used.  The ore is said to be getting richer with depth.” -  The Los Angeles Daily Times

June 16, 1898: “THE YELLOW ASTER  COMPANY have brought suit against the Henry Milling company of Garlock to recover 3000 tons of tailings and $5000 damages; also the same company have brought suit against J. B. Hughes, mill man of Garlock, to recover 4000 tons of tailings and $5000 damages.” – The Herald
