Yggy, the Royal Peacock and the Bonanza mines are the two in Virgin Valley. The Royal Peacock is actually mining back into a ridge, and you get to go there and all you find, you keep.

Check 'em out :

The Bonanza is going through tailings piles: Check them out, too:

There is also a mine not far from the event that I want to check out, too; turquoise down near Tonopah, and the Oregon fire opal mines.

I will have a blast this summer, find anything or not.

there's some decent turquoise, chalcopyrite, and other copper minerals right at the head of Rye Patch reservoir, between BRC and I80, much closer to I80.

good luck on your hunting, though.

That's no flood. That's from the port-o-johns that were adjacent to Free Sushi camp on Saturday morning.

What I like about this is the advertisement for the plumber on the side of the brick building. The juxtaposition implies that if you don't have a competent plumber, your town will flood.

This is a kinda awesome slide show...

Another, with some duplicates.

Yet another slide show, but there are about 500 images here, totally amazing.
