Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


The town of Silver Peak is located in west-central Nevada, between Clayton Valley dry lake on the east and the Silver Peak Range to the west. Gold was first discovered here in the 1860’s, but nowadays the town mines the dry lake for lithium and other minerals. Silver Peak is the major supplier of lithium in the U.S.

I have a beautiful aerial video of the lithium works on the lakebed:
