    : Check out Goff's, California on old Route 66 about 8 miles from Needles. The Mohave Road Association is currently rebuilding a ten-stamp mill and will eventually put it into a demo-operation complete with all buildings. Anyone interested in old mills can get in on the ground floor and volunteer to help reconstruct it. There's no better way than that to learn about them.

    : Check out Skidoo, CA. The Skidoo Mines Co. mill is still standing without its protective shell, but machinery in fine shape.

    : Bodie's Standard Mill has regular tours in the summer.

    : Check out the Buena Vista, NV page. Todd should have my photos of that stamp mill up anytime now.

    : There is a 2-stamp mill on display at Laws, CA railroad museum.
