The Cassidy Mine is a gold and silver mine located in Pershing county, Nevada at an elevation of 4,140 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: 4,140 Feet (1,262 Meters)
Commodity: Gold, Silver

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.
Cassidy Mine MRDS details
Primary: Cassidy Mine
Secondary: NBMG Sample Sites 2924
District: Trego Mining Area
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 (Development): NO ACTIVITY AT TIME OF EXAMINATION IN 1985. WORKINGS APPEAR TO DATE FROM 1930'S.
Comment (Deposit): Discovery Year: 1930'S ?
Comment (Deposit): BEST VEIN MATERIAL IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE INCLINE SHAFT IN MAIN PART OF CAMP (SAMPLE SITE 2924). VEIN MATERIAL INCLUDES HYDROTHERMAL BRECCIA WITH CHALCOPYRITE, AND POSSIBLE TETRAHEDRITE. SAMPLE 2925 WAS FROM A SHAFT ON HILLSDIE SW OF MAIN CAMP A FEW HUNDRED YARDS. DUMP MATERIAL HERE INCLUDED GRANITE, EPIDOTE, AND LESS MINERALIZED MATERIAL CONTAINING PYRITE, SDIERITE, AND CHALCOPYRITE. IRON OXIDES ARE COMMON IN ALL VEINS.
Comment (Location): UTM IS FOR SAMPLE SITE 2924 (SHAFT). UTM FOR SAMPLE SITE 2925 IS N4521860, E311860. ; INFO FROM LAND.ST :(1972)
Comment (Workings): ONE INCLINE, SEVERAL SMALL SHAFTS AND SHALLOW ADITS, PROSPECTS, DOZERCUTS. PROBABLY CONSIDERABLE UNDERGROUND WORKINGS ACCESSED BY THE INCLINE, JUDGING FROM SIZE OF DUMPS.
