Bell Cow Mine

It is said that Gregor Schneider never worked off his ranch at Platina except to build the flume to the Bell Cow Mine. This flume later evolved into a narrow dirt road known as "The Ditch Grade". - Shasta Historial Society

The original Bell Cow Mine went through name changes, expansions, owner changes and so on from 1910 to 1928-29. Persons involved seem to be: S. H. Fiske, J. P. Erhart, J.H. Purcell, Frank A. Greene, John Mason, C.W. Leininger, J. Asby Simpson and Jesse Carter.  - Mines of Shasta County 1891-1941
