Tokop District- Unknown Mine

Esmeralda County

I haven't been able to figure out exactly what this place was. We stumbled onto it by accident after making a wrong turn, trying to find Tokop. This place is in the Tokop Mining District. It's approximately one mile due east of Slate Ridge and approximately 3/4 of a mile to the southwest of the Checkmate Mine. If you take the road due west from this place for a little over a half mile, there is a road heading north. Less than a 1/4 mile up that road appears to be a fairly large, past operation. That may help you find it on GoogleEarth.

Last Trip/ Road Conditions: 2013. I honestly don't remember how good or bad the roads were. But I usually take a mental note of a really bad road, and I don't have any bad memories of it.
