Ghost Town for sale

Post by bluegreen kayak » Mon Jun 18, 2018 2:45 pm

My husband, knowing my fondness for the Death Valley area, brought my attention to this site offering Cerro Gordo for sale: cerrogordomines.com

I'm thinking I should buy a lottery ticket tomorrow; that would be my only chance.

While we were looking on Google Earth at the nearest town, Keeler, we saw a strange arrangement of lines on the south end of town, with trucks and heavy equipment. We could not figure out what was going on. Anyone know?

Cerro Gordo now in escrow. Keeler lines are mineral mining on the dry lake surface, which has been going on since the late 1800s.

Well that didn’t take long to sell. Wondering what the future of Cerro Gordo may be.

Perhaps you were looking at the dust mitigation work they are doing on Owens Lake bed?
