2 Abstract The Bodie mining district, in Mono County, California, is the site of a historical gold mining operation. A magma source underground and a series of faults allowed a hydrothermal system to develop in which water was heated underground and forced to the surface, where it deposited minerals, including silver and gold in quartz veins. These veins were mined and the ore milled and smelted into gold bars locally in Bodie between the 1840s and 1950s, when it was abandoned.
