The Robinson Mine—Big Things Happen Here
January 2013 by Bill RichWhen I’m traveling through the West, I sometimes take detours that lead me to places that I never knew exist
There is no question the economy will not always be as good as it is now. There is also no doubt that someday the lack of exploration and the ore in existing mines running out will come home to roost.
The main ore deposits of the Ely district are associated with an east-west belt of altered and mineralized rocks measuring about one mile wide that extends 8 miles westward from Ely.
Knowing how and when to deduct the cost and expenses of the vehicles used in the prospecting or mining operation can have significant tax implications.
One of the oldest sayings in the mining exploration world is that if you are going to search for a new mine, one of the best places to look is near an existing, proven property.
The Beatty Mining District in south-central Nevada has been one of the most productive Mining Districts in the state, producing millions of ounces of gold together with silver, fluorite, mercury and other valuable minerals.
During our visit during late May, 2011, the vertical nature of the mineralized areas was clearly visible, as were numerous examples of quartz-carbonate veins in shear zones, faults and folds.
