Mineral Ridge Mine At Fish Lake Plus More

Hello to all my readers.  This is just one view we have from our camp site at Fish Lake.
Nature, beauty of the land and DesertDale is in seventh heaven, with  all the  bird photos he can take.
Mineral Ridge is a gold mine, that is located is7 miles north of Silver Peak ,  Esmeralda County, Nevada.
It was discovered in 1864 and mined until 2005.The mine produced 575,000oz of gold including 405,000oz from underground operations and 170,000oz from open pit.
The property holds permits for large scale gold production. Due to the presence of significant gold in the heap leaches, Scorpio Gold expects to convert the property into a commercial asset.
The combined resources in both Drink water and Mary open pits have been estimated to be 4.6 million tons (mt) graded at 1.462g/t Au. Cumulative inferred resources at Drink water and Mary open pits amount to 3.7mt grading at 1.120 g/t Au.
The deposit lies within the northeast edge of the Silver Peak Mountain Range, located within the Walker Lane. The Walker lane is a 100km wide corridor that divides the Sierra Nevada Bartholdi to the west and southwest and the Great Basin to the east and northeast.  (info from the following site http://www.mining-technology.com/projects/mineral-ridge/).
  We went to Tonopah today to get supplies.  This is what ran across the road, DesertDale did not have enough time to get a good view.  Hope you enjoy it.  It is a badger.  Ugly damn thing.
