Significance: The Gold Dust Mine, Mill, and Camp are locally significant as a representative example of the small lode mines which operated in the Leesburg Basin during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Because Leesburg was primarily a placer mining area, these mines were few in number and accounted for only a small percent of the area's gold production. Among the most long-lived of the Leesburg lode claims was the Gold Dust; it operated sporadically between 1895 and 1939.
