GOLDEN QUEEN MINING

Soledad Mountain Project

Mojave, California

WELCOME TO THE

SOLEDAD MOUNTAIN PROJECT

Golden Queen Mining is home to the historic Soledad Mountain Project, located just south of Mojave in Kern County California.  Golden Queen produces both gold and silver metals from Soledad Mountain and is one of the last remaining gold mines in the state of California.  The mine was first operational back in the early 1900’s, but gold and silver production was brought to a halt during World War II.  Low gold prices after the war kept the mine closed.  In recent years rising gold prices led to the push to reopen the mine.  Golden Queen received their state operating permits in 2014 and work on the infrastructure of the mine began.  Today the Mine utilizes  conventional open-pit mining methods, cyanide heap leach and Merrill-Crowe processes to recover gold and silver from crushed, agglomerated ore.  In addition to gold and silver, Golden Queen also produces aggregate material as a byproduct of mining processes.
