Beesh Ligaii Bighan Gold Mine (United States)


The mine derives its significance from the fact that it is a component of the only known base metals mine in the Carrizo Mountains. The mine and its features represent the result of intensive prospecting for gold and other precious metals that began on the Navajo Reservation, perhaps as early as 1875. Moreover, the mine, in operation during the 1920s, ranks among the oldest of any type of mine in the eastern Carrizos.
