USGS Full Report

Primary Mining: Gold
Secondary Mining: Silver, Lead, Zinc

Rich Hill 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.

There is a single collar shaft at this mine location.  The collar shaft was too loose and there were limited anchor points, so we chose not to rappel.  Using the tailing pile to estimate depth, there didn't seem to be much in the mine anyway.
