Significance: The Skidoo Mine is associated with the operations of the Skidoo Mine Company, Death Valley's most successful gold mine. Although the mill shows structural deterioration, the mill is otherwise a well-preserved example of the California Gold Mill, an ore processing system once employed ubiquitously throughout Western gold fields during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
