Rex Mine (also known as Rogers) and Stamp Mill located in Chelan County in the Entiat Mining District. This mine was a producer of gold and silver. Mining records indicate the mine was owned by the Wenatchee Gold Mining Company from 1906 - 1922. The land was then leased to Bert Rogers according to records from 1943. A two-stamp mill was added to the property at some point during its peak production.
The mine had produced around $170,000 in gold by 1930 and small amounts in 1933, 1934, and 1940.
The mill building on the property contains a Hammond Manufacturing company two-stamp mill. The mine consisted of three adits.
The Hammond Manufacturing Company was started by Issac B. Hammond. He
began in manufacturing stamping and other equipment in Deadwood, SD. In
1888 he went to London to purchase a 120-stamp mill for the notorious
Bear Nest Mine near Douglas AK. After the collapse of that enterprise
Hammond bought the equipment and brought it to Portland Oregon where he
formed the Hammond Manufacturing Co. around 1891. He remained the
President of the company until 1911 when he retired from day to day
