I visited Kenworthy's site shortly after he left the area many years ago. I found a lot of mine dump rubble but no shaft or tunnel. I later ask Kenworthy about there being no mine site and he replied that he had "all the diggings blown shut". Cordially, Gregory E. Davis

Gentlemen; A hint when traveling along Hewitt Canyon. Bob Garman seldom left the mail trail or road. The picture he took of the butte was most likely done near the OLD Hewitt Canyon Road which for the most part followed the creek bottom or just out of the creek bottom. Cordially, Gregory E. Davis
