Monte Cristo Gold Mine (United States)

The Monte Cristo Gold Mine (Spanish for Mountain of Christ Gold Mine) is a gold mine in the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles, California, USA.

The Monte Cristo Gold Mine is part of the quest for mineral wealth in the San Gabriels. Many of the older tunnels and shafts are closed, and the 100-year old machinery is no longer in operation. The mine has not been operated since 1942, but for over half a century it bustled with activity.
