Yellow Pine 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.

Yellow Pine Mine is probably the best known mine in the area.  Being so well known and having some of the largest tailing piles in the area, we were expecting more, but were disappointed that all entries were either sealed or unsafe to explore.
