Gold Field Nevada  Old time cards. by Nayikee Gold Field Nevada  Old time cards. by Nayikee
On the same camping trip i found these time cards(actually pieces of paper)Where the
stamp mill workers recorded their hours by the day.I found these amongst the ruins of
an old stamp mill where the ore was processed into gold.I hope you can see the detail.
Some of these are a 100 years old now.

Aw, cool!  What a find!
They're in such good condition, too!
They probably wouldn't last in Midwestern weather.

Thanks!Some of those mill workers were only
making 3 to 4 dollars a day for such brutal conditions
that they would have had to work in.

I could not believe that paper exposed to the
elements could last that long.They had been
buried.But still amazing.
