The Palo Alto mine, originally located in 1884, is located about three miles north of Merrimac. It had a 3 foot wide vein in granite with 2 stamp mills comprised of 22 stamps in 1890. The Palo Alto company held 130 acres with a quartz vein opened by five adits with a few hundred feet of workings. Some ore was taken out and milled at one of two stamp mills on the property. Other mines that were also part of the property included the Bonanza, True Fissure, and Baker. [ref: Ireland, California State Mining Bureau 1890 p129, 1893 p164.]
