   Near Nipton, California in the desert you'll find an interesting mine, the Goldome Mine. The present mill dates to the early 1980's, but don't let this discourage you, it is a very interesting site with an great history. Just 17 miles from the mill was the Vanderbilt Gold Corporation's mine. They, amongst others, used this mill to work their findings. Looking at the mill site today you'd think all the workers had just left to go to lunch.

   Bill's an awesome guy, we're tickled that he's offered to be a contributor here and is sharing his numerous trips with us. Enjoy a trip to the Goldome Mine and let us know what you think? 
Goldome Mine
   The California Desert Protection Act of 1994 created the Mojave National Preserve, and with the new regulations mining within the preserve essentially ended. The Goldome complex seems to have ceased operation by 1998.
   The Environmental Protection Agency has listed the Goldome complex as a superfund site so it is possible that there are harmful chemicals still to be found there. Join Bill Algeyer of JK Southwest for this trip!
