The Bonanza Gold Mine was the largest and probably the most valuable free gold mine in the Pacific Northwest. It was located on the ridge north of Geiser Creek, about five miles east of Greenhorn in Baker County. The Bonanza Mine was discovered in 1877, and actively operated between 1892 and 1907. This photo is by John W. Cowden, who worked in Sumpter from 1901 thorugh 1905.
