The name Keystone was the last name used. As mentioned, the Lotus was its original and historic name. Current mining stopped about 1996. The workings for the mine(s) are up the south face of the canyon and over the ridge. I'm sure you noticed the vandalism at the main camp. It used to be quite a nice place - a small pool, trailers with coolers, main building. Camp now made up of eyesores - totally destroyed trailers (even structural damage), ramsacked buildings, vandalised vehicles and equipment. Some of the equipment is still owned by an equipment company back east and were abandoned by a former leaser of the mine when he skipped the area (some scandal surrounding that).
