No printer listed. 9 x 12.5" Deep folds, some soiling, creases on right border, wear to edges. Please inspect. Funeral Mountains east of Death Valley and Furnace Creek, California. The location was discovered by a miner named Jack Keane in 1903. Keane and a partner named Domingo Etcharren had scouted the area, called Chloride Cliffs, and had located a potential silver mine. Etcharren eventually left while Keane stayed behind to scout the area more thoroughly. As Etcharren was leaving he noticed an outcropping of quartz, which can often be found near gold deposits. When Keane investigated further, he discovered gold. Keane named the find "Keane's Wonder" and the two miners quickly sold an option on the claim to a New Yorker named Joseph DeLamar. Now part of Death Valley National Park.
