The Green Mine is a antimony mine located in Pershing county, Nevada at an elevation of 4,902 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.
Elevation: 4,902 Feet (1,494 Meters)

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.

Land ownership: BLM Administrative Area
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): THE ORE OCCURS AS SMALL LENSES AND PODS IN A MINERALIZED FAULT ZONE. ANTIMONY MINERALS ARE MOST ABUNDANT IN THE NE PART OF FAULT ZONE, BUT DO OCCUR MORE RARELY TO SW IN FAULT ZONE. SOME OF THE RICHEST ORE WAS FOUND NEAR THE INTERSECTION OF THE MAIN FAULT ZONE AND SMALL CROSS FAULTS THAT OFFSET THE FAULT ZONE 1 TO 2 FEET.
Comment (Workings): FOUR ADITS TOTALLING 410 FT EXPLORE A MINERALIZED FAULT ZONE 120 FT ALONG STRIKE AND 55 FT DOWN DIP. SOME STOPES DRIVEN FROM ADITS. SOUTH OF THE MAIN WORKINGS, SIX SHORT ADITS EXPLORE A COMPLEX FAULT ZONE. OPEN CUT.

Comment (Production): 46 TONS SB METAL
Comment (Development): FIRST LOCATED DURING W.W.I. A SMALL QUANTITY OF ORE WAS SHIPPED IN 1918. THE GREEN BROTHERS (AVERILL & FRANK) WORKED THE MINE FOR 3 YEARS (1933-36?), STOCKPILING 30 TONS OF ORE. THE GREEN MINE WAS ALSO WORKED DURING THE PERIODS 1936-37, 1952-54, AND 1962-67. EXPLORATION DONE IN 1970'S. NO ACTIVITY IN 1985.
