Stewart's Mill

Little has been written about Stewart's Mill, but in 1881 Robert H. Stewart was the foreman at the State Line mine. He also held a lease on the Lida Belle mine around this time, and sometime during the decade became owner of the Oriental mine on Gold Mountain. He built this five-stamp mill to treat his ore, and in 1886 it was also processing ore from Kelser & Tracy's Death Valley mine. It isn't known when the mill ceased operation, but Stewart continued to work his Oriental mine until his death in 1902, reportedly removing $600,000 worth of gold ore.
