Cosmopolitan 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 Cosmopolitan Mine has two working sites. There isn't much to see at Site 2. There is a backfilled portal that someone dug their way through. Beyond that portal is maybe 20 feet of adit. A prospect at best. We have yet to explore Site 1 which is on the opposite hill of Site 2. The trail to Site 1 is posted "Private Property" and is a current working mine site.
