The Highland Gold Mines Company was incorporated in the state of Oregon, and operated mines in Sumpter (which was founded in 1862 by gold prospectors on their way to California gold fields, when they panned gold out of Cracker Creek) and Baker (where gold was discovered in 1862, and quickly became one of the Northwest's largest gold producing areas.)
