What: Wendover Mine Documentation Expedition

Where: Peppermill Hotel
680 Wendover Blvd
Wendover, NV
[masked]




Experience Mining History!





Your chance to explore and document mine sites with the Mojave Mine Team!



This is a great opportunity to work side by side with the Mojave Mine Team while we document and explore the historic abandoned mines of the west. Many of these mines are scheduled for reclamation and their workings need to be properly documented and explored before they are sealed forever. As a free-form documentation activity you will be able to get involved in the planning and execution of this trip. Bring your notepads, cameras, and safety gear and be ready for a good time!

For this activity we will be meeting in Wendover, Nevada at the Peppermill hotel. Rides out to Wendover can be coordinated in advance, If you would like to drive and have 4x4 please let us know. You are welcome to stay the night in Wendover Friday night with us, or show up Saturday morning. We'll plan our activities Saturday morning as a group. Due to snow depths and conditions the area that we document on Sunday could change at any time. The area we choose to document will be no more than a couple hours drive from Wendover and we will plan to be back at the hotel by 6:00PM.

This is a winter trip, prepare to be outside for extended hours in the snow. It is very likely that accessing the mines will require hiking around in the snow, bring snow boots and your regular mine exploration footwear.
