A stamp mill was erected and about $3,000 in gold was extracted. No one has seen fit to prospect at greater depths. If the camp ever amounts to anything other ledges different from the present ones must be found or the present ones followed to a greater depth to ascertain their value.
On October 20, 1890, however, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush was on. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history.

The Oregon Gold Mining Company in Cornucopia reported a 20-stamp mill in 1889. This was an industrial operation that required substantial buildings and heavy machinery. The lumber used to build this structure was milled in Baker County, and like the machinery, was taken to Cornucopia by horse-drawn wagon.
The mill started as a 20 stamp affair but eventually grew to 80 stamps. The mill was 460 feet long, had a total floor space of twenty-five thousand square feet and cost nearly $350,000.00 to build. The daily output of the mill was four hundred tons with a yield of fifty to sixty tons of concentrates high in gold, silver, and copper.
