Lucky Lade Mines were first developed in 1904 to mine gold from the mountain during the Oregon Gold Rush. Following an article from the Farewell Tribune and reports of gold found in the area, J.R. Black, a local businessman, built the mines with high hopes of striking gold. Unfortunately, any gold or silver he and his crew found were nearly worthless, and so the mines, like the Farewell Gold Rush, were quickly abandoned. Eventually, the mine was brought by the Santiam Industries for its cinnabar.
