Description
Clippings, correspondence, notes and documents related to the Yellow Aster Mine and mining life in Randsburg, California.
Background
John Singleton, Frederic Mooers, and Charles Burcham staked a claim at what would become the Yellow Aster Mine on April 25, 1895. The discovery was funded in part by Charles' wife, Dr. Rose La Monte Burcham who agreed to help fund her husband's interest in prospecting. The Yellow Aster Mine became one of the major producers of gold in California, attracting prospectors to the area and helping create the town of Randsburg.
