VERNON & SNOWSTORM
This 20 acre gold lode mining claim is just outside of Lovelock, NV - and includes a unique ore type that includes Gold, Silver, Tungsten AND Uranium-308. The occurrence of Uranium-308 is not considering dangerous, nor of an economically significant grade. Some samples test in the counts-per-minute range of 300 -500 CPM which would bring novelty to some collectors. Assays show 1-3% of Uranium in this mine, found primarily in scheelite.
However this mine is a historic past-producer of Gold and Silver along with values of Tungsten. Last workings at the Vernon & Snowstorm mine were during 1984 where a small shipment of ore was sent to the local mill for its Tungsten and Gold values.
The claim contains multiple prospects pits, an adit and a decline with over 200 feet of underground workings. Good shoring and good dirt roads lead you up directly to the portal, and ore reserves on the claim.

The following gallery are some photos I took of a nearby ghost town. In fact there are lots of uranium mines, gold, silver and tungsten all around the area. This ghost town is about 4 miles away from the claim, but still lots of fun to explore! Check it out:
