Mine prospect on Peshastin Creek near King Creek. The name and history of this mine near Blewett Pass is unknown.  It sits at an elevation of around 2500 feet. The mine has a little over one hundred feet of workings.  There is evidence that the mine contained track at one time.  The rock in the Peshastin District is mainly schist, serpentine, and greenstone.  In the process of researching. There were many mines along Peshastin Creek, mining in this area began as early as the 1870's.
