Would love to explore that area...the mining industry up there intrigues me as well.I did find a couple of references on Shafter and the Shafter Mining District:http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/SS/hns37.htmlhttp://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/SS/gps2.html
Stopped by there a few years ago after seeing a "romance novel" set in Shafter. A depressing little village with "no trespassing" signs everywhere! Though they do have a pretty cool old cemetary for those who like that sort of thing. A large (old) series of display boards with hundreds of old photos of the "old days" and old residents at the entrance.
