Reclaimed Mining Tailings

Reclaimed Mining Tailings

Mining has been going on in/around the Ruby Valley for a long time. When driving by this "hill," I thought it looked a bit odd and out of place. I then realized that it was a reclaimed mining tailing. Give it another 20-30 years, and this mining tailing likely will be indistinguishable from the rest of the desert. This particular tailing lies about 10 miles to the south of the Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge - more or less in the middle of the Ruby Valley Scenic Drive.
