Southern Nevada and Tonopah Basin

North Star and Gold Coin Mines

Dan and I visited these mines in the autumn of 2008. I couldn’t find much history on either of these two small mines. They both look to have minor production and are seldom visited.

We found an oven or furnace at the end of our trip. Its origins and purpose remain a mystery. If you have any insights, please let me know.
