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