The Pansy Lee Mine is a silver mine located in Humboldt County, Nevada, at an elevation of 4,800 feet. It has historical significance in the mining industry and was first discovered in 1936. Although it has been actively operated in the past, it is currently closed with no known plans for reopening.

Interestingly, there is another reference to the Pansy Lee Mine at a slightly higher elevation of 5,102 feet. This mine is not only associated with silver but also with gold. The details about this mine were obtained from the USGS Mineral Resources Data System3.

If you’re curious about the mining history in the area, the Ten Mile Mining District surrounding Winnemucca, Nevada, has played a significant role in the extraction of valuable minerals. However, the Pansy Lee Mine remains a silent witness to the past, Waiting for its next chapter in the mining saga.

Sec 1 T36N R36E Silver lead gold copper

Deposit: The mine is on a small knob on the east side of the krum hills hosted in shales and siltstones of the rasberry fm. Many of the veins occupy ne-trending shears while others only partly fill the shears; most dip west at steep angles. Dumps near the big shaft are extensive and filled with pyrite, and other sulfides. Small adits along NE shears are remnants of earlier activity in the camp. Sample 2374 was a high-grade chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite, sphalerite, tetrahedrite, and possibly au/ag mineralization. Sample 2375 was a composite sample of quartz vein material from the main dumps, and included breccias with visible tetrahedrite and galena As well As arsenopyrite and pyrite.; model name could also be: polymetallic veins. Consists of sunpatented claims adjoining the nevada consolidated mines co. Most of the $142,628 produced in the district in 1942 probably came from this mine. There was sporadic operation of the mine after wwii but no record of its productions development consists of several adits, a 180 ft deep shaft, and 1600 ft of other workings. In 1972 the property was leased to alpine minerals, inc., and subleased to jack wilson. In 1907, the first claims were staked on the veins of the present workings. In 1910, small-scale production was begun lasting for several years, by the 1910 mining co. From then until 1938, only sporadic leasing and prospecting occurd, until the west coast mines co. Took it over in 1937. Biggest production- 1941. Largest Ag-production in nevada at that time. ; info.src : 1 pub lit; 2 unpub rept; 3 field observ

Deposit type: Low-sulfide Au-quartz vein

Development: Great west gold and silver was sampling the 585 and 710 levels of the west coast mine in 1985 to investigate possibility of reopening. Merger of great west gold and silver and west coast mines announced in dec. 1986. Drill program to test downward extension of the vein was planned. Reopening was announced in early 1987.
