Great Basin and Eastern Nevada

"Sterling Pound" Mine

This mine is extensive. We have not explored it all. Most of the ore in this mine was mined from the 1920s to 1950s, netting million in profits. The main shaft is over 1,700 ft deep with greater than thirteen miles of drifts and crosscuts. Hopefully, we can return soon and explore more of this great place.
