The most complete guide to Southern Nevada's mining history.

Articles and Accounts

The purpose of this section is to provide easier access to specific information that would normally be lost in the clutter of the weekly "Site News and Updates".   I expect this section to be light for a while, but will gradually grow as I have more to add.  I don't expect this section to be entirely about mining and history.  Those who know me well know I have a short attention span and will interrupt myself to change a subject.

The core of this group is far more knowledgeable than me.   For years, I've been wanting to tap into that knowledge.  If you want to share accounts of your adventures or want to provide articles of value for the rest of us, this would be the place.  If you have anything to share, send me an email and we'll talk about it.
