Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


Potomac is one of the oldest mining camps in Nye county, dating back to 1862. It is near the San Antonio Mine and the Cimarron Mine. These two mines were operated from 1937 to 1940. During that time they produced a verified shipment of over nine tons, containing 13.3 ounces of gold and 47.2 ounces of silver.

Because there is so much to see at this site, I’ve divided the photos between two pages. This page covers the structures at the UPPER end of the town.
