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

Lavina 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.

Lavina Mine looked promising with 3 or 4 open portals, but none had any significant depth.  In the valley below, there appeared to be an incomplete trail carved into the hillside, but with a closer look the area was mined.  At best, this mine should be classified as a surface prospect.
