Near the eastern slope of Pilot Peak, the Dunlap Mine lies in the heart of the district. Mining in Nevada wasn't always just about gold and silver. The Pilot Mountain Mining District (occasionally referred to as the Sodaville District) resulted from the discovery of gold, cinnabar, tungsten, copper, and silver in the early part of the twentieth century. Many small scale mines and little mills sprang up and the town of Eddyville was formed around a gold mine in the 1930's. In the close-by town of Mina NV, you will find an RV park, a couple of rock shops - and a working brothel (believe it or not). Other than that, there isn’t much in the way of services like fuel, food or lodging, so you’ll want to base out of either Hawthorne or Tonopah NV unless you plan to camp at the mine itself. Surprisingly though, you’ll often find good cell signal in the area, despite the remote location and rugged terrain. Hawthorne NV is a 30 minute drive northwest from Mina, and you will find all kinds of motels, gas stations, restaurants and stores. And Tonopah lies about a an hours drive minute drive to the southeast of Mina, where you will also find gas, motels and some restaurants - as well as a couple of small casinos if that is your thing - one with an RV park. Gold ore at the Dunlap mine occurs in bodies of irregular shape and size, sporadically distributed throughout a narrow quartz vein occupying fractures within Triassic metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. The ore zones within the narrow vein are composed principally of soft, earthy manganese and iron oxide in a frail, sponge-like structure of silica; gold occurs as very fine threads ant thin plates in interlacing masses, often in sufficient quantity to bind together pieces of broken ore (Stoddard,1932,p.1). The vein occupies a fault plane, strikes east-west, and dips steeply north; at the Dunlap mine, the vein ranges from two inches to three feet in thickness. Stoddard (1932, p. 2) described the discovery vein at the Dunlap (the Stormcloud) as occurring within meta-andesite which has been intruded by later andesite dikes, probably of Tertiary age; he related the ores of the district to the later andesite. Stoddard also described the occurrence of other, similar, veins in the area surrounding the original discovery. The Dunlap consists of 20.66 acres of ground on Federal/BLM land and is made up of an 5 adits on the hillside about 25 to 50 feet from the road. Numerous old concrete foundations as well as an old retort that is still in pretty good shape are onsite. All five (5) of the adits are open, but 2 could use an hours worth of labor to widen the entrances, as they are partial blocked by years of natural erosion. Lots of tailings, old relics, tracking and timbering onsite in addition to the foundations. The mine has a documented past production history for gold, silver, quicksilver and copper which was produced from the mine’s main workings. While I was able to get to the mine only using 2-wheel drive, if you do not have good ground clearance and good off-road tread on your tires (not to mention being an experienced off-road driver), then I would suggest that you plan to use a 4-wheel drive vehicle, as every year monsoon rains can wash out sections of the dirt road here and there and without a little hand work to fill some ruts, it could be tricky to get to for the non-prepared driver. If you do plan to use 2-wheel drive, I would strongly recommend bringing a good shovel and a pick in case you do need to make a quick off-road road repair. Buyer will receive the following with their completed transaction:Quitclaim deed showing full ownership of the claim. This will be stamped, recorded and verified with the County and the BLM offices.Welcome packet with all of the rules and regulations as they relate to the State and BLM where the claim is located.Educational documents to annually renew your mining claim with the BLM.A CD of all of the documented images of the claim including maps of the site.Map of claim marked and GPS coordinates.Multiple maps showing claim location and surrounding areas for access. Come to Hike, Camp, Ride and Shoot - or come to pull some shiny rock$ out of the ground;-) Mining History The first recorded discovery of mineral in the Pilot Mountains was in 1913 when cinnabar was found in a limestone ledge exposed in an old prospect pit (Knopf, 1916, p.59). The date of the original work on the prospect is not known. Since the rediscovery of cinnabar in 1913, prospecting and mining has been carried on intermittently. Production through 1952 totaled about 5000 flasks of mercury (Phoenix and Cathcart, 1952, p. 145). In 1916, tungsten deposits were discovered on the east slope of the Pilot Mountains, south of Graham Spring. Some mining was done shortly following discovery and intermittently thereafter through about 1956. The district is credited with production of about 24,000 units of WO, during this time. In 1971, large deposits of scheelite-bearing skarn were defined in the area of the old Desert Scheelite and Gunmetal mines and plans were made to develop a large mine to exploit the deposits. The price of tungsten fell, however, and the deposits remain as an unmined resource; reserves in the district are estimated at about 8 million tons of ore containing around 0.3 percent WO, and significant amounts of copper and silver (Stager and Tingley, 1988, p. 117). Gold discoveries were made about 2 miles northwest of Summit Springs, in the southern Pilot Mountains in May of 1932. A small rush occurred to the area and, by the fall of that year, Eddyville, a settlement of about 75 prospectors and miners, had grown up at the discovery site (Stoddard,1932). Stoddard mentions that by September of 1932, 2-ton shipments, averaging about $1000 per ton in gold, were being made each week to the Selby smelter in California. No other records of activity at this camp exist, and its total production is not known. At the time of our examination of this area, new mining claims were in evidence, but little work was in progress. The Pilot Mountains district includes all of the Pilot Mountains in southeastern Mineral County. The district lies east of Mina and U.S. Highway 95 and extends between the Bettles Well- Graham Spring road on the northwest to the Mineral-Esmeralda county line on the southeast. Monte Cristo Valley forms the eastern boundary of the district. The Pilot Mountains are composed largely of Permian, Triassic, and Lower Jurassic volcaniclastic, clastic, and carbonate rocks which have been locally intruded by stock-like bodies of Cretaceous granodiorite-quartz monzonite and, in one area, a Tertiary rhyodacite dome. Felsic to intermediate volcanic rocks of Middle to Upper Tertiary age crop out extensively over the area, the most extensive outcrops are on the north and south margins of the district (Grabher, 1984, p. 7). The principal structural feature of the area is the Luning thrust, a regionally-extensive feature that has stacked coeval units of differing facies; in the Pilot Mountains, Triassic carbonate rocks of the Luning Formation have been thrust, as a complex, imbricately-stacked package, over post-Luning age clastic rocks as well as Permian volcaniclastic rocks. Faulting, in part related to the Walker Lane system, also is prominent in the area. Northwesterly faults of this system form portions of the western range front (Grabher, 1984, p. 7). MAPS This auction is for full/all interest in this 20.66 acre lode mining claim and includes full rights to all minerals, gems and just about whatever else you may find on the property. The winner of this auction will receive a notarized quitclaim deed to the full claim and all associated documentation showing full ownership of the claim. Maintenance on all BLM mining claims is $155.00, per 20 acre parcel, annually. This must be paid on or before September 1st, every year unless you do more than $100 per year in improvements to the property, in which case you can file for and receive a waiver of the maintenance fee. NOTE: If you own fewer than 10 claims nationwide, we can assist you in filing the paperwork to waive the maintenance fee every year. That means you can only plan on paying $10 per year for your maintenance fee instead of $155. And let me just re-state once more the answer to the one question that I get asked the most often; you are bidding for full claim ownership, not just a down payment or a part of this claim. Auction end price is the final price for the entire site – there are no phony transfer fees or handling costs of any kind! Transfers of Ownership in Mining Claims; Interest in a properly recorded mining claim or site may be transferred in part or its entirety. So you can will, gift, sell or lease your interest in this claim at any time in the future.

You do not have to worry about anything – we handle the BLM transfer documentation and the recording. Then if you ever want to will or sell your claim in the future, we will gladly assist you on the paperwork for no charge. Can you camp / build on your mining claim? Without an approved plan of operations, you have the same rights and restrictions as the public. If the area is open to camping to the public, then it is permissible. However, you need to check with the BLM Field Office or the local District Ranger for areas open to camping. Under Federal law in order to occupy the public lands under the mining laws for more than 14 calendar days in any 90 day period, a claimant must be involved in certain activities that (a) are reasonably incident; (b) constitute substantially regular work; (c) are reasonably calculated to lead to the extraction and beneficiation of minerals; (d) involve observable on-the-ground activity that can be verified; and (e) use appropriate equipment that is presently operable, subject to the need for reasonable assembly, maintenance, repair or fabrication of replacement parts. All five of these requirements must be met for occupancy to be permissible.
