We hiked up to the Potosi Mine to check out Nevada's oldest lode mine. The Potosi Mine was discovered in the mid-1800s and was owned by various companies until about 1930. The mine was mainly a silver mine, but other minerals were also mined there including zinc. We explored nearly all of this extensive, six-level abandoned mine.
