Aside from a passing reference in a "scouting report" by Victor Kral in May of 1950, I can't find much other information. Kral mentioned talking to a Mr. Roy Claire Ames of Ione about a flourospar mine.
Whatever he was up to, Ames was here for a while. There was a two story house, a shop, one of the most enduring double-seater outhouses we've ever seen, and the corpses of several automobiles and trucks ranging from what appears to be the 1920's to a 1950's Ford.
