The Green Gold Mine is a gold mine located in Pershing county, Nevada at an elevation of 4,800 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: 4,800 Feet (1,463 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.

Primary: Green Gold Mine
Secondary: NBMG Sample Site 2546

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): Discovery Year: 1930'S OR BEFORE
Comment (Production): WORKED AT INTERVALS FROM 1930'S TO EARLY 1960'S BUT RECORDS OF PRODUCTION ARE SPARSE. IN 1948-49 120 TONS OF ORE WAS MILLED FOR THE FREE GOLD VALUES. LAST KNOWN PRODUCTION IN 1960.
Comment (Geology): THE MINE IS ON A QUARTZ-SPHALERITE-PYRITE VEIN
Comment (Deposit): 0.3 M WIDE QUARTZ VEIN PARALLEL TO BEDDING IN PHYLLITE AND HORNFELS WHICH STRIKES N70E, DIP 30NW (FROM CONTACT OF HORNFELS AND GRANITE). GRANITE IS CUT BY APLITE AND DIABASE DIKES. VEIN REPORTEDLY CONTAINS SPHALERITE, ALTHOUGH NONE WAS SEEN IN THE SAMPLE COLLECTED. ACCORDING TO STEVE LUDDINGTON OF USGS, THE VEIN CONTAINS SPARSE YELLOW SCHEELITE.
Comment (Workings): ONE MAIN ADIT ON VEIN.
Comment (Development): WORKED SPORADICALLY FROM 1930'S TO EARLY 1960'S WITH SPOTTY RECORDS
