The Golden Reef Stamp Mill

stamp millA mining boom in the early 1900s motivated a group of Chicago investors to capitalize a new mining operation, the Golden Reef Mine. A new 10-stamp mill was purchased for operation on Continental Mountain. It was shut down due to a fire in 1913 and rebuilt in 1917. The mine was put up for sale and eventually abandoned. This historic stamp mill now resides at the Cave Creek Museum and recently underwent restoration.
