Blomquist Brothers Mine

Site visit 2012

Bloomquist or Blomquist brothers cabin and mine site.  Located on Blue Creek in the Swauk Mining District of Kittitas County.  This was a lode gold mine site.  There are several tailings piles and collapsed shafts on the property.  The incline tunnel is mostly flooded.  It only goes back 25 feet before it is collapsed and is very unstable today and not worth entering.
