Surprise 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.

Surprise Mine has two site claims.  Site 1 is behind and above the Fredrickson Mine.  Site 2 is behind and above the Hermosa Mine which we have yet to explore.  We have only viewed the Surprise Mine from a distance because we are unsure if it is still open.
