The Cardwell Mining District is part of the greater Whitehall Mining District. The district is situated about four miles to the east and northeast of Whitehall in the southern end of the Bull Mountains which are near the Continental Divide. The first reported production was in 1896 after the dis­covery of the Mayflower Mine. Mining has been carried on in­termittently and on a small scale since that time.
