Golden Calf Mine is located South of Las Vegas, Nevada. Nearest town is Nipton, California. Primary mining in the area included: copper, lead, silver, gold and zinc.

The Golden Calf Mine is a large surface pit mine.  It's much larger than it appears in the pictures, but not something worth making a special trip to see.  There are larger and deeper gravel pits throughout the Las Vegas valley.
