After the opening of the Indian Lands in Oklahoma, mining began in the Wichitas, all to be over with by 1907,the year of our Statehood. Miners were said to be numerous. Upon locating a place to mine a Monument was required to mark your claim. While hiking and bushwacking a remote area my hiking partner and I found this monument or cairn. Knowing a mine would be located nearby we began searching.
Sure enough over the rise the debris from this pristene " Glory Hole " was spotted!
It appeared as if it was just abandoned yesterday instead of a Hundred Years ago!
