Hiked from the Bull Canyon trailhead to a couple of these mines just west of Deep Creek. Adits were rock solid with no timbers or shoring. One was quite deep, while the other was more shallow, but chocked full of carnotite leeching through the walls. Lots of interesting rocks outside the mines show evidence of interaction with mineralizing fluids depositing all manner of useful elements in distinct layers. The hike was easy and uneventful save a few spots in which the old road was overgrown enough with manzanita and the like to complicate passage. I was somewhat disturbed to see cattle grazing within the wilderness area, is that legal?

Maybe some day I'll make it all the way to Moody Point, but I doubt it...
