The Coso Hot Springs region is located in the central part of the Coso Mountains, California. Knowledge of the hot springs predates early California mining days; use of the springs for medical purposes continues to the present day. The existence of mercury minerals in the solfataric altered zones was discovered in the early 1920 's and led to considerable exploration and some mining in two major areas southwest of the village of Coso Hot Springs. The settlement, located in T. 22 S., R. 39 E., M. D., Inyo County, about 11 miles northeast of Coso Junction, a station on the Southern Pacific Railroad, can be reached by either of two graded gravel roads which run easterly from Highway 395. Coso Junction lies about 2 miles north of Little Lake.
