History: The Lone Pine Mine was the largest and most successful mine near Golden. It was located in 1907 and 1908 by J. N. Harmon and D. F. Morrow. When F. O. Muller acquired the property in 1927, a ball type of mill was installed which increased the mine’s production. Wendell Morse was the operator of the mill at that time. The mine produced a little more than half a million dollars in gold. (For those of you not familiar with mining and mills, I’ll describe what a ball mill is in the next column.)
