The Jenko Mine is a documented mineral property in the Eldorado mining district of Clark county, Nevada.
Featuring an adit portal driven into a highly mineralized outcropping of Gold bearing limonite, an old blacksmith’s cabin and excellent access.
Located in the historical El-Dorado mining district of southern Nevada, the Jenko property boasts USGS reports of high resource potential in : Gold, Silver, Copper, Cobalt and Nickel.
There are no production records from the district between 1863 and 1873. Estimated Gold and Silver production before 1906 at between $2-to- $5 million worth of Gold and Silver; Longwell (1965) .
Estimated production is $4.5 million in Gold, Silver, Copper, Lead, and Zinc between 1907 and 1961.
With increased precious metals prices today, total value recovered is over $316 million.
The Mine was previously owned by a small family operation from the early 1980's-through-2020. The Family owned the Jenko and the Solar Mines.
Rocky Mountain Prospectors, LLC acquired the mine in 2021.
- Primary workings consist of a single haulage adit and upper inclined shaft, driven into a highly mineralized limonite outcropping of Eldorado Canyon.
- The adit is estimated to run 310' feet to the interior shaft workings. Combined drifts on a single level are estimated at over 750' feet.
- Ore grades consist of a high quality limonite matrix. Free milling gold is located in contact zones with dark rust colors, while high concentrations of Gold, Silver , Copper and base metals are available in the oxide and Galena zones.
- Estimated deposit values are: 0.75-to-2..25 OPT Au(Gold) -- 2.7-to-41.00 OPT Ag(Silver) and over 7% Copper bearing malachite.
- Secondary values of Cobalt and Nickel are available in trace amounts.
Less than 200 yards of combined mine spill rest beneath the underground entrances.
Given the presence of the well constructed blacksmith house and low amount of spill, the previous owners were working a high grade deposit with small had operated tools and removing the majority of the ore.
•Surveyors noted visible Gold and specimen grade malachite in the primary spill near the old wash.
An old blacksmith's cabin was skillfully built into the side of a small hill near the primary workings.
Constructed of wood and steel sheeting, the structure is estimated to have been constructed during the 1980's.
Inside the standing cabin is functioning brick and stone fireplace.
The mine is located in a secluded section of El-dorado canyon, a well maintained road is suitable for any 4x4 and most higher clearance 2wd vehicles.
Parking and staging areas are available for campers and multiple vehicles.
A perfect location for the beginning enthusiast, up to an established mining company.
