Mountain Queen Mine. Goodsprings, Nevada.
USGS Full Report
Primary Mining: Lead
Secondary Mining: Copper
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 looked 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. The mine is now mostly sealed.
