Jaybird Mine Claim Photographs


Churchill County, Nevada - Tungsten and Gold Past Producer

The Jaybird mine is one of our multi-ore, past producing gold claims for sale located in Northwest Nevada, measuring 20.66 acres, just over the hill from beautiful Pyramid Lake! Too expensive to pull out of the ground in the 1940s, mining operations stopped on this expansive mine, but operations as costly as a backyard hobby can pull new ore out of this hole with ease.

The Jaybird mine is less than a mile South from the patented Nightingale mines and shares the same mountain range. The white tungsten present in the Nightingale is shared in the Jaybird, and miners need only go further where the others stopped to touch gold. Orange iron oxides are everywhere the black molybdenum and white tungsten is not, and additional hydrothermal scarring indicate the spot is the perfect hunting grounds for gold.

Significant underground work is present behind the main portal with 1000s of feet in tunnels and adits. Hill trenching can be found scarring the earth around the claim site. Plenty of tailings piles nearby for grab samples. Evidence of a collapsed tunnel is found on the East end of the claim.

Timbers remain inside the tunnels, with old ladders, clay tiling and the like. Plenty of old irons can be found for historic relic hunters. It's likely additional relics can be found on the unexplored, upper levels of the mine.

A decent dirt road exiting the small service town of Nixon, just 30 minutes from Reno, will lead you straight to the claim. Four-wheel drive is recommended.
