The Rosal Mine is a antimony mine located in Pershing county, Nevada at an elevation of 5,200 feet.
About the MRDS Data:
All mine locations were obtained from the USGS Mineral Resources Data System. The locations and other information in this database have not been verified for accuracy. It should be assumed that all mines are on private property.

MRDS mine locations are often very general, and in some cases are incorrect. Some mine remains have been covered or removed by modern industrial activity or by development of things like housing. The satellite view offers a quick glimpse as to whether the MRDS location corresponds to visible mine remains.

Note: the land ownership field only identifies whether the area the mine is in is generally on public lands like Forest Service or BLM land, or if it is in an area that is generally private property. It does not definitively identify property status, nor does it indicate claim status or whether an area is open to prospecting. Always respect private property.

Comment (Deposit): TWO VEINS ARE EXPLORED. ONE VEIN STRIKES N40E, DIPS 80E, CONTAINS 4 INCHES OF GOUGE AND 32 INCHES OF BRECCIATED AND UNALTERED SANDSTONE. GOUGE CONTAINS A FEW SMALL PODS AND INDIVIDUAL CRYSTALS OF STIBNITE AND ABUNDANT SB-OXIDE STAINS. THE OTHER VEIN STRIKES N80E, DIPS 55 DEGREES S AND CONTAINS 12 INCHES OF GOUGE WITH PYRITE, 10% QUARTZ, AND 10-20% SB IN FORM OF PODS OF STIBNITE AND STAINS OF SB-OXIDES. SANDSTONE BETWEEN THE TWO VEINS IS FRACTURED AND STRINGERS OF STIBNITE, 1/2 IN WIDE, AND SB-OXIDES FILL THE CRACKS. SANDSTONE ITSELF CONTAINS DISSEMINATED PYRITE AND STIITE.; MODEL NAME COULD ALSO BE: SIMPLE SB.
Comment (Workings): MINE WORKINGS INCLUDE TWO ADITS, TWO SHALLOW SHAFTS, AND A NUMBER OF OPEN PITS AND TRENCHES.
