Photo: 2004 ROM
A gold mine. Eagle's Nest was a discovery pit at the top and some adits lower down in a five level deposit of crystallized gold.
The De Maria Mine is also on this deposit.

The Mystery Wind Mine does not exist as a separate mine (Dona Leicht, pers. comm.) and was a made-up name used to conceal the origin of the specimens. Mystery Wind specimens should be labelled Eagle's Nest.
