    Abstract: Photographs (prints are only those filed with the negatives), negatives. Photographs made by Don Chaput and Bill Cumiford of the Museum's History Division staff during July 1984 and 1986 field trips to the Oriental gold mine in Sierra County, CA., near the town of Allegheny. A number of these artifacts from the mine have been donated to the Museum (A.10938.84) by Donald Dickey, who owns the mine property.
