Pumice is Found Near Susanville
April 9, 1947

Sam Sherman and Dudley Moss, Susanville residents, have recently discovered deposits of pumice on government-owned land near the Rice Canyon Road one and one-fourth miles north of Leavitt station and approximately 10 miles east of Susanville. The two men have filed claim on the land. The property is reported to have three layers of pumice.

Both Sherman and Moss believe this deposit, which is made up of pumice stones varying in size and density, covers a large area and is readily marketable. The deposit is roughly 600 feet wide by an estimated 20 feet deep.
