Copper Flower Mine. Goodsprings, Nevada.
USGS Full Report
Primary Mining: Copper
Secondary Mining: Uranium
Copper Flower 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 leading up to the Copper Flower Mine now has deep ruts from midway to the top. A well built rock crawler can still make the climb, but it would be best to walk the trail and see if it's something you want to attempt. Most of the Copper Flower Mine is a surface operation, backfilled or sealed with bat gates. There is no way to enter this mine so there's not much to see up there anyway. I don't believe it's worth another trip. There isn't much more up there than what is seen in the pictures below.
