Wheel of Fortunes Past

Two tailing wheels remain on display in Kennedy Tailing Wheels Park in Jackson, California The tailing wheels system, which operated from about 1914 to 1942 transported mine waste over two hills to an impoundment basin in Indian Gulch. The Kennedy gold mine was the deepest gold mine in the world at its closing in 1942 during World War II. It never re-opened.

    • Dennis there are lots of mines in the eastern part of California and around here in Montana. You have to be careful walking in the foothills of California so that you do not fall into air shafts of old mines. These big wheels were very interesting. Have a good day. Jim
