The most complete guide to Southern Nevada's mining history.
Mountain Queen 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.
This is one of the many mines we located accidentally while trying to locate a better route to another mine. The valley is well hidden and didn't look like it would end up a small wash, but it opened up nicely. There is nothing remarkable about the Mountain Queen Mine. At best, I would consider it little more than a prospect. The incline shaft followed a seam a few yards in and ended abruptly.
