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