The Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona




The Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona





This is a photograph that I took of some of the dilapidated buildings that are still standing at the now abandoned Vulture Mine near Wickenburg, Arizona. Although these old buildings have been long abandoned and are in bad condition, they are still full of relics that were left behind by the miners.....walking through them, you almost expect that they'll be coming back in any moment. The place is eerily silent except for the breeze rattling the old tin roofs.

The Vulture Mine was the most productive gold and silver mine in Arizona history. During its operation from 1863 until 1942, it produced 340,000 ounces of gold and 260,000 ounces of silver. However, the mine was plagued by many problems during its history. It was the target of numerous Indian attacks, raids by ruthless highwaymen, and was almost constantly subjected to the hardships related to the lack of a viable water supply. There were also numerous mining fatalities here as well as the hanging of thieves who tried to illegally mine gold (these types of thieves were known as “high graders.”) The mine was equipped with a small jail and a hanging tree to deal with such offenders.

Operations at the mine officially ceased in 1942 per executive order issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The miners thought that they would be returning within six months, but operations never resumed. Today, the mine is privately owned and has an eerily quiet presence to it as though everyone simply got up and walked away, leaving everything behind. The owner allows you to tour the grounds, but they inform you that you do so at your own risk because it is a dangerous place. There is still many millions of dollars worth of gold and silver there.

Inside the Power House At the Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona





This is a photograph that I took inside what was once the power house on the grounds of the abandoned Vulture Mine near the town of Wickenburg, Arizona. It was in this building that electrical power was generated for the mining operations during the 20th century. For years, this was a noisy center of round-the-clock activity; however, it now sits in quiet abandonment.
