Owned/operated by:


A former Au-Ag-Cu-Mn-Mo-Fe-As-Hg-Sb occurrence/open pit mine located 17.3 km (10.8 miles) ESE of Golconda Summit (Golconda District) (coordinates of record), along the West side of Interstate highway 80. The USGS map illustrates the flooded open pit with a sign saying this is a Newmont mining reclamation site.

The primary mineralization is gold, arsenopyrite and pyrite. The oxidation zone portion of the ore body was heap leached successfully for gold with byproduct silver but the primary ore was uneconomic.
