Basalt Mine and Mill, operated by Grefco, Inc..

Grefco has operated this mine since 1944. J. S. Horton, Chief Mine Engineer of Grefco is quoted in Albers and Stewart (1972):

 "The deposit is an isolated embayment of a large fresh-water lake bed of the Tertiary period. During the interval of diatomaceous deposition there was a minimum of contaminants introduced by interior drainage into this embayment.
 "Structurally the deposit forms a shallow basin in the western sector while the central and eastern sones are monoclinal. Stratigraphically the lacustrine sediments are composed of diatomite, clay, sand, and volcanic ash. The lacustrine section overlies basalt and andesite flows, and is itself overlain by basaltic flows.
 "Species of diatoms occurring in this deposit are fresh-water structure, Melosira predominating. More specifically the more abundant species are Melosira granulata, Stephanodiscus aslraea, and Eunotia robusta."

In 1989, mail came here from Mina, NV 89422, and the local telehone was Dicalite #1. The mine had 12 employees and produced 8,766 tons of diatomaceous earth.

In 2007, the Basalt Mine and Mill had 9 employees and a telephone number: 775-573-2422. Mail was directed to Grefco's address in Burney, California.

    Turn east here, go 0.5 mile, then turn north on dirt road for 1.1 miles, park on right side of road, and then walk south to the top of the hill. Lee, et al. (2006) give geographic coordinates of this stop of (37.5643°, -118.3287°), but I think the correct coordinates are more like (37.4705°, -118.3319°).

  • Continue east on Rudolph Road a total of 1.9 miles to the Southern Belle Mine, and the type locality of Senecio monoensis Greene.

On the west side is:

  • STOP 2-1: Chalfant Quarry (N 37°27’36.1”; W 118°21’58.3”) of Reynolds and Jessey (2009).

    The Bishop Tuff, dated at 760 ka, was produced by a 6-day-long eruptive event from the Long Valley Caldera (Hildreth and Wilson, 2007). Air-fall ash remnants have been found from western California to Nebraska, an area of 1 x 106 mi2. Pyroclastic flows spread 40 miles to the southeast down Owens Valley, 20-30 miles east to the White Mountains and 30–50 miles north into Mono Lake basin. The caldera collapsed into an 8 mi x 14 mi elliptical depression. It has been was subsequently enlarged by slumping and erosion to its current 11 mi x 20 mi dimension.
