Red Cloud 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.
The two known collar shafts of this mine have been sealed. There are still a few standing structures on site including a partial mill and tanks we believe were part of the gold cyanidation process which was a chemical process of using cyanide to remove gold from low grade ore. We are unsure of the dangers or duration of cyanide. Best to stay clear of this one.
