We’d missed touring the Standard Mill in Bodie, but still had the chance to check out a mine the next day. This is the Mammoth Consolidate Gold Mine. It’s reached via a short hike that starts from the parking lot of the Coldwater Campground. The Mammoth Consolidated Gold Mine operated in the 1920s and was owned by the Mahan family. Miners lived in cabins like this one, which is one of several buildings that are still intact.
