JET Mine is located Southeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. Nearest town is Searchlight, Nevada. Primary mining in the area included: Gold, copper, lead, silver, and zinc.

All references to this mine have been capitalized, but we were unable to locate any acronyms.  From our internet research, we thought this would be an easy mine to rappel into since it's an incline shaft with a standing head frame for rope anchors, but found it to be too dangerous on site.  The head frame was collapsing and the collar shaft was primarily gypsum.  If our rope anchors held, the gypsum would be too soft and unstable.  Not worth the risk.
