East Side Mining Company

Upper shaft

Lower shaft

 

 

Located six miles from Bisbee on the east side of the Mule Mountains at the edge of the Sulphur Springs Valley. These prospects were developed by East Side Mining Company. This property was being developed as early as June 1903. In August a fine sample of free gold was placed on display in the window of the B.F. Graham & Company office in Bisbee. A year later there was an office, boarding house and a bunk house on the property and nice gold- bearing ore specimens were being shown around Bisbee.  During 1908 the property was transferred to the Empire Exploration Company. By 1910 the workings on the property had two shafts, one known as the “Upper shaft” was 120ft deep and had been intercepted by a tunnel from the surface. The “Lower shaft” was seventy feet deep. Originally, it had been intended to drive a tunnel under the “Upper shaft” and raise a connection. It was then planned to use the “Lower shaft” as the main hoisting shaft. Little has occurred on the property since this 1910.
