Death Valley - California - Skidoo Mining
District was one of the last gold mining efforts in Death Valley. Gold deposits were discovered in 1906. The town of 23 Skidoo grew to almost 500 people by the following year. Production of gold ore continued intermittently until the rich gold veins played out in 1917. Today the town of 23 Skidoo consists only of a few ruins. The ruins of the mine's ore processing works are shown here. 23 Skidoo, or just Skidoo, probably got its name from the usage of the phrase of "23 Skidoo" by police in New York City who used to say "23 Skidoo" when chasing women-watching men away from the Flatiron Building (at the intersections of 23rd Street, Broadway, and 5th Avenue in Manhattan).

Il Distretto Minerario di Allontanati Veloce (Skidoo) è stato uno degli ultimi luoghi in cui si è estratto l'oro nella Valle della Morte. I giacimenti d'oro erano stati scoperti nel 1906. La città dei 23 (twenty three) Skidoo era cresciuta di almeno 500 persone nell'anno seguente. La produzione del minerale d'oro è continuata in modo intermittente fino a che le vene ricche d'oro sono finite nel 1917. Oggi la città di AllontanatiVeloce dalla 23 è costituita soltanto da alcune rovine. Le rovine degli impianti di lavorazione del minerale d'oro sono mostrate in questa immagine. (23 Skidoo, o solo Skidoo, probabilmente ha avuto il proprio nome dall'uso di un modo dire, della polizia della città di Città Nuova, che usava dire: "Allontanati veloce dalla ventitreesima" (Twentythree skidoo). Quando allontanava i guardoni dalla Fattoria (Bowery, bouwerij di Peter Stuyvesant), lontano dal palazzo di Acciaio Forgiato (flat iron), (una volta la costruzione più alta Dell’Isola della Collina, (in lingua algonchina Manhattan), posta fra le intersezioni della (23°) Ventitreesima Strada, ViaLarga e del Quinto Viale).
