Named after a woman,
Olive Oatman, who was captured and later released by the Mohave
Indians, Oatman is still going today. Today this popular tourist
attraction draws visitors from all over the world. Once here you will
see and experience the romance of digging for gold. Gold was mined here
from the early 1900's till the 1940's when mining for all precious
metals was shut down because of the war effort. Mines in Oatman never
opened again until Addwest Minerals acquired land in the Gold Roads
area in 1992 and began gold production again. Gold Roads is located 2
1/2 miles east of Oatman on Route 66.
