PERRINI MINE CALIFORNIA
A Mine on the Border

Unoccupied Historic Mine
Mono County
Circa Early 1900’s

The Perrini Mine, located only a handful of feet inside of California, is part of the Masonic Mining District which was founded in the early 1900’s. Evidence found during our exploration indicates that the Perrini was an organized mining operation.
