Steer Mine, Nevada
Where's the Beef?
How the Lost Steer Mine was found is one of those stories we have heard a
thousand times, but I'll repeat it again; A lonely old prospector was out
prospecting in these hills with his faithful companion cow when he decided
to sit down
against a tree and take a nap, when he awoke he had found that his cow had
taken off with all of his supplies.
They say when you visit the Lost Steer Mine and the conditions are just right, you just might hear a "MOO" in the night!
The official records want us to believe that the Lost Steer Mine was a
mercury mine that was discovered in 1913 with 450 flasks of mercury
shipped by 1941.
