Death Valley, California

Ubehebe Lead Mine/Corridor Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"This exploration of a historic early-twentieth-century mine
site with a tram will appeal to history and mining buffs. The longer leg in Corridor Canyon will enchant those who appreciate scenic vistas of desert cliffs and mountains.

Ubehebe Mine has a lengthy history, beginning in 1875 when copper ore was found here. The copper mine was not fully developed until early in the twentieth century, but the profitable ore was soon depleted. Lead mining began at the site in 1908 and continued until 1928. Ubehebe Mine had another renaissance in the 1940s as a zinc mine. Mining activity came to an end in 1951."
