Site Visited 2012/2014
The Liberty mine is located in the Swauk Mining District of Kittitas County WA at an elevation of 3600 feet.
The claim dates to the 1930's and was owned by Liberty mines Inc. which was formed in 1933. The workings of the site originally consisted of several cabins, tool shops, and a 15 to 25 ton ore processing mill. The underground workings originally consisted of three adits, a lower and two upper. Today only the lower remains the upper adits are collapsed. The lower adit consists of 1500 feet of tunnel.
Historical assays show the mine produced about 0.3 ounces of gold per ton of ore. Today the remains of some of the structures can be found on the property in addition to the mine.
