Early morning tour of Goldfield Nevada. Goldfield is a cool old town that still has some working mines and a lot of history. Below is some information from Wiki.
Goldfield is a community located in Esmeralda County Nevada with a population of around 270.
Goldfield was a boomtown in the first decade of the 20th century due to the discovery of gold between 1903 and 1940, Goldfield’s mines produced more than $86 million. Much of the town was destroyed by a fire in 1923, although several buildings survived and remain today, notably the Goldfield Hotel, the Consolidated Mines Building (the communications center of the town until 1963), and the schoolhouse. Gold exploration continues in and around the town today.
Gold was discovered at Goldfield in 1902, its year of inception. By 1904, the Goldfield district produced about 800 tons of ore, valued at $2,300,000, 30% of the state’s production that year. This remarkable production caused Goldfield to grow rapidly, and it soon became the largest town in the state with about 20,000 people.
Driving Copper Basin Road (aka Yavapai County Highway 64) from Prescott to Skull Valley, through Arizona’s Prescott National Forest. The first 3 miles are paved, the next 13 miles car drivable dirt, and the last ½ mile is paved. Did some mine exploring. Blog & Links:

Restored 1881 Eureka Opera House on Hwy 50 in Nevada where they were having the Nevada State Old Time Fiddler’s Contest.
See it at:
Eureka, Nevada was settled by some silver prospectors from nearby Austin n 1864 when they found silver/lead ore at Prospect Peak. By 1873, Eureka was Nevada’s second ranking mineral producer next to the Comstock Lode.
In 5 years, the population of Eureka would swell to 9,000 people. Their economic mainstay would be in operating the smelters that would separate silver from lead. With all of the black smoke and soot coming from 16 smelters, Eureka would be known as the “Pittsburgh of the East”.
Due to a decrease in mine production, the smelters closed down and the population fell. During its heyday, Eureka had over 100 saloons, several gambling places, an opera house, hotels, churches and 5 fire departments.
The population consisted of Irish and Cornish miners, German, Italians (including the Carbonari who manufactured charcoal for smelters), Chinese and Jewish settlers. The population that wasn’t miners worked in general labor, making food, the laundry business or in medicine. It was a thriving town.
Lex was quick to point out a rare 5 hole outhouse erected in the middle of the town. We really didn’t know it was that rare till we read the historical marker on the fence surrounding it – the fence was probably to protect it from people who might still want to use it. It must have been quite a prize because it was the object of a lawsuit between two men who claimed ownership.
We decided to leave the famous outhouse alone and visit The Eureka Opera House.

Our Lady of the Rockies Berkeley Pit huge Copper Mining Site Our Lady of the Rockies in Butte Montana is the second Talles Statue in the USA Can You guess the First..;-) Butte is a Western Mine Town and The Richest hill In the World and Butte has huge Virgin Mary Statue on top of the mountains overlooking the city Our Lady of the Rockies. The Statue is Lit up att night you can also do a tour and see it up close in the Spring and Summer. This Statue is 90 Feet tall the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil is only 99 feet so pretty close considering just how Small Butte Montana is. The only Statue Bigger than Our Lady of the Rockies is The Statue of Liberty.. The Berkley Pit was the Richest Mountain in the world at the time. They produced enough Copper to pave a Four-Lane Highway four inches thick from Butte to Salt Lake City which is about 350 to 400 miles. That is very impressive. Pause and read the paper it is pretty cool how much rock they pulled out of the pit. They are closed in the winter time or I would of showed you the actual pit itself. As I drove around I tried to zoom in on the giant Virgin Mary statue that they have up on top of the hill but I couldn’t get that good of a shot of it. It is not the size of the one in Brazil but it is huge and quite impressive.
Our Lady of the Rockies is a 90-foot (27 m) statue, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, that sits atop the Continental Divide overlooking Butte, Montana. It is the second tallest statue in the United States after The Statue of Liberty.
The statue was built by volunteers using donated materials to honor women everywhere, especially mothers. The base is 8,510 feet above sea level and 3,500 feet above the town. The statue is lit and visible at night.
The statue was first imagined by local resident Bob O’Bill. In 1979, his wife was seriously ill with cancer. He promised the Blessed Virgin Mary that he would make a 5 foot statue of her in his yard if his wife recovered. When she recovered he began the project with his fellow workers who gradually changed the initial vision to a 90-foot-high mountain top statue. Many people in Butte donated materials and time to make the statue a reality. The design for the statue was engineered by Laurien Eugene Riehl. He was a retired engineer for the Anaconda Company who donated his engineering skills to the project. The statue had to withstand the powerful windsheers that buffet the ridge tops. Joe Roberts donated his lot and buildings for the construction of the statue. The statue was airlifted from Roberts Rocky Mountain Equipment to its present site on the Continental Divide.
Work on the project began December 29, 1979. Volunteers spent many summer evenings blasting a road to the top of the Rockies, sometimes making only 10 feet of progress a day. The base of the statue was poured in September 1985 with 400 tons of concrete. The concrete was provided by Pioneer
