Combination Mine is located South of Las Vegas, Nevada. Nearest towns are Jean, Nevada, Goodsprings, Nevada and Sandy Valley, Nevada. Primary mining in the area included: copper, lead, silver, gold and zinc.
The trail directly leading to the Combination Mine is marked "Private Property". We originally approached this mine from the South where there are no signs and were trespassing entirely by mistake. Be aware this mine is privately owned and not under BLM management. There is nothing more to see than what is in the gallery below. Please, respect property rights and do not cross property signs or barriers.
Combination Mine was the site of the original Monte Cristo Mine. At one time, both sites were called Monte Cristo, but after both sites were closed, the lower site reopened as the Combination Mine. The upper Monte Cristo Mine never reopened.
Structurally, Combination Mine was beautifully worked with a large, columned, open stopes, and multiple portals within that stope. There are cabin remnants nearby and several more portals across the wash. None of which had depth and we suspected them to be explosives and cold storage.
