    Wow.. how increditly Cold War. Ominious looking. Was there a mountain or ridge on the other side to receive the signal or something? Looks like the remains of a transmitter building at the foot of the structure. Cool find! :clap

    Yesterday morning pic. The "building" is in a very narrow valley close to a waterfall and a torrent. As you can see, at about 800 mt a.s.l. the spring as yet to come.

    I am somewhat surprised that New Idria, CA hasn't (yet) made it into this thread.

    New Idria was the second largest Mercury (Quicksilver) mine in the US.
    Mercury is extracted from Cinnabar Ore.
    This mine was established in 1854 and started production of Mercury in 1857 and ran until April of 1972.
    Herbert Hoover even made a visit to the mine in June of 1936.
    New Idria had what is believed to be the first lighted baseball field in California. (as stated here)
    Asbestos was also mined in this area.

    More info on New Idria here, here and here.

    Here's a photo of the former mercury smelter building with four large Gould rotary furnances taken at New Idria on September of last year...

    Since I could only attach 1 photo I will provide more (of this area) in a trip report on a small group ride to this area that can be seen HERE.
    This is on the Pashnit Forum.
