Description
The mineral occurrence of Ogema Mine was discovered in 1890. The mining was abruptly stopped due to water difficulties and the mine was sold to Ogema Mining and Smelting Company in 1892. Gold content was too minor to justify profit, so the property laid idle until 1926, when the American Lead and Refining Company took over and modernized the mine .They installed a boiler, hoist and compressor that continued working from the old entrance of the mine. The Ogema Mine produced lead, silver and gold.
