NV, Great Basin and Eastern Nevada

"Steel Indian" Mine

I’d been wanting to check this remote mine in the Great Basin region of Nevada out ever since I first read about it many years ago. We visited it in 2010 and it turned out to be a nice find.

The site has minor amounts of equipment, of which most interesting is an old drill rig. The mine is interesting as well with a few thousand feet of drifts and stopes. I definitely need to go back and do some more exploring one day.
