Mary Ann Mine/Claim

 

 

This claim was worked by Charles Anshultz and was located across from the Sacramento Mine on the eastern flank of Sacramento Hill. It was later restaked as the Cumberland. Little work occurred on this claim other than annual assessment work. No sign of any original work exists and no mine was actually on the original property. This area was partially mined out by the Lavender pit and covered by highway 80. Charles Anshultz was an early pioneer in the district and at one time even owned part of the Copper Queen Mine.  In 1899 he died on the “B” level of the Holbrook mine, when a full case of Giant Powder (Dynamite) mysteriously exploded, while he was working alone.
