The Lost Burro Gold mine was accidentally discovered in 1907 by Bert Shivley as he was trying to round up his burros and picked up a heavy rock to throw at one of the lost burros. There was free gold in it and on the surface of the ground and Shivley filed six claims with assays pegged at $40 to $1000 a ton.

This is way off the beaten path and is best explored with a high clearance vehicle with sturdy tires, have a spare or two just in case if you decide to check it out.
