This section is for books, articles and website links that have helped me in my Nevada research. Thank you all. 

 

Websites:

Full text search of MRDS records (usgs.gov)   Government website that provides historical data on mines. 

Western Mining History   A very good website for western mining towns and mines. 

Mindat.org - Mines, Minerals and More   Self-explanatory. This is a good site for digital mining district maps. 

The Diggings™: Free Mining Claim Maps And Reports   Self-explanatory. This is a good site for digital mining district maps.

Forgotten Nevada   I don't know these guys, but I'd go ghost towning with them any time. Great site! 

Nevada Expeditions (nvexpeditions.com)   Another really good Nevada website!  

Ghost Towns & Mining Camps of Nevada – Legends of America   You can always find a good article here. 

Ghost Towns of Nevada   This site seems like it hasn't been updated to modern times. But it has been a total staple for me. Very complete. 

NEVADA GHOST TOWNS & BEYOND - The Gouge Eye Chronicle (nvtami.com)  She is somebody that has helped me quite a bit with tips and advice on the website building process. Always available to BS with and talk history about the very obscure, remote and more unknown sites. She has her own unique, historical writing style. I highly recommend her site.  

Ghost Towns, Mines, and More! (raydunakin.com)   This site has other stuff, but this link is awesome for Nevada ghost towns.
