Box 1919 Quincy Living history docent Jay Skutt (above center) manned the assay office to explain the process of determining the amount of gold in ore sam- ples. Mines regularly tested ore samples.from all of their shafts and mining locations. Fire assaying is an ancient process, dating back to the times of Troy in 2600 BC. The Mohawk stamp mill (top right) is the hallmark of Plumas Eureka State Park. It was constructed in 1878, as a 40-stamp mill, but another 20-stamps were added in 1880, bringing the total to 60. The mill crushed the ore to release the gold. At full output it processed 150 tons of ore per day. Photos by Diana Jorgenson Serving Sierra & Mohawk Valleys Postal Service: USPS (No. 439-420.)
