History

In the winter of 1908 was discovered a gold ore by five prospectors in the place which became Buckhorn. These prospectors had sold their claim to mining magnate George Wingfield who formed the "Buckhorn Company" in 1910 and started the mining activities. In 1914 lived in that town 300 inhabitants. However,the Buckhorn veins were weaker than the expected and production has dropped in 1914 and 1915. The mine has closed in 1917 and was reopened in 1935, but the results were newly weak and was definitely closed. Nowadays the only remains of the old town are the mill foundations and of another buildings.
