This mine is quite unique in our experience. The Coppins Dude Gold Mine was run as a mining "dude ranch" in the mid 1940s through the 1950s.

It also appears that this was the site of a water bottling plant and to the best of our knowledge, it was the water flowing out of the mine itself that was bottled! We found a huge pile of bottle caps that said "Coppin's Club Soda" as well as hundreds of aluminum paper labels for the club soda and "Coppin's Mineral Water".
