Fredrickson 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.
We have an interior map of this mine from when there were plans to covert it to a fallout shelter. Using this map we were able to navigate easily to the lowest levels where we found a partially detonated working face. In a single hole, we saw the back end of an undetonated stick of dynamite. It is too dangerous to remove an undetonated stick wedged into a pilot hole, so the working face was abandoned.
This mine also followed a thrust fault along an incline shaft. There is a stoped area about halfway down that is unstable and collapsing.
