USGS Full Report
Primary Mining: Gold
Secondary Mining: Silver
Jenko Mine is located Southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. Nearest town is Nelson, Nevada. Primary mining in the area included: Gold, copper, lead, silver, and zinc.
We're unsure if we found the actual Jenko Mine. We're certain we found the Jenko Mine camp, but the only mine portal we found in the area was nowhere near the mine camp. The portal we located was occupied by angry bees. We've located quite a few active bee hives in this area. Use extreme caution.
