Today on Gold Rush Media, Jessica walks us through the Tiger Lily Mine. The Tiger Lily is located in Pershing County, Nevada. This mine is historically known as the Rabbithole shaft. It’s a wide, decline that works a rich vein of quartz with gold and silver. The surveyors estimated the shaft depth at 225′. There is what appears to be an adit that may have been used as a haulage tunnel at the base of the canyon below the mine. This corresponds with the location of the stone house. A likely scenario that the stone house was built near the lower side of the mine. The quartz lode that runs down into the workings is not worked out. The gold is all native, or free milling gold. Unlike a placer mine, you are bringing out strictly gold and not just sifting through dirt. So don’t be surprised when you pan out a few ounces at a time. That’s the benefit of lode mining.

A few miles of tunnels, went down a 272 foot shaft and found a huge room. Spent a few hours underground.
