Quaker City Mine is located South East of Las Vegas, Nevada. Nearest town is Nelson, Nevada. Primary mining in the area included: gold, silver, lead, copper and zinc.

We came across this mine accidentally while attempting to locate an alternate route to the Occidental Mine.  Structures were clearly visible from a distance, but disappointment set in when we found every portal and collar to this mine has been back-filled and foamed shut.  While still interesting to see the standing head frame and powder room, we were hoping to get underground.
