The Liberty mine is located in the Swauk Mining District of Kittitas County at an elevation of 3600 feet. 

Liberty Mines Inc. was formed in 1933.  The property originally consisted of several cabins, tool shops, and a 15 to 25 ton mill.  There were three adits on the property a lower and two upper. The lower adit is about 1500 feet of workings and the only one that remains open today.   Test ores indicated the mine produced 0.3 ounces of gold per ton. 

The remnants of several structures can be found around the property including a cabin site.

This mine has seen modern activity over the years by independent owner/prospectors.
