California, United States
Mount Tom in California's eastern Sierra Nevada range is a large and prominent peak near Bishop. Along with its neighbor to the south, Basin Mountain, it dominates the western skyline from Bishop.
The Pine Creek mine on Mount Tom was an important source of tungsten for much of the 20th century although scheelite ore deposits are now largely depleted and mining on the mountain has mostly ceased. The mountain is named after Thomas Clark who is credited with the first ascent of the peak in the 1860s.
