   You're going to go off-roading or hiking into a new area and  you're curious as to whether or not there are any mines in that particular area. Or you know there are mines in the area where  you'll be, but what is the extent of the mining history there? How many shafts, adits and what were they mining there? You could do a search, but not all the mines are easy to find and sometimes the information is limited. Then along comes this web site that seems to have it all. Here's an example.
Mining location map
   This is only a partial map -- showing the states of -- Oregon, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado,  Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and the upper half of Arizona. Of course you can go the site and move the map to any western state  you want or you can open a map of JUST the state you want to see. Zooming in will allow you to get more detail on this Google map. You can also see here that when you click on a mine a pop-up box shows it's name, commodity, GPS co-ordinates and what they mined there. For more info click on the "view mine details" link at the bottom of this pop-up. Once you click this link then you'll be able to see the detailed info for this mine -- see the example results below.
Mining information
   You'll notice that the Black Rock mine is still working and committed. So only enter with permission! Other details are listed here as well. Now all you need is to visit the web site and see this mining data base for yourself. This is a great resource for desert travelers. Don't miss this!
   There was a tremendous amount of work that went into this really nice western map with all the mine listings and locations. Please if you're going to use this data base -- consider a donation to Aron Walton owner of the site. This should be a great addition to your desert travels.
