INVENTORY OF HISTORICAL RESOURCES THE WEST SIDE
A. Southern Panamints and West Side Road (continued)
4. Anvil Spring Canyon
Ernest Huhn first located a single claim here in the late 1930s at an elevation of about 2,100 feet. The property was then acquired by the Western Talc Company in the late 1930s or early 1940s, which commenced driving an exploratory adit trending north and then east in an attempt to reach the talc vein. The only other works consist of several pits and trenches. Three men were employed at the mine, living in a tent and carrying on their work by means of a portable compressor. As of 1961 the deposit was still unproductive and generally unexplored. 
b) Present Status
Anvil Spring Canyon was not traveled by the writer because there is no longer an established road through it. The route, therefore, has not been explored for evidences of mining activity, but it is known that no active mining is currently taking place there. The area has not been subject to either historical or historical archeological survey.
