HM1
Houghton Mine

The Houghton (Victory) mine is in the lower slopes bordering the west side of Porter Wash, in the Goodsprings Mining District, in Clark County. The claim is registered in the names of T.B. Keeler, P.S. McClanahan, and M.T. Schwartz. In 1917 about 80 tons of ore containing 37 percent zinc was shipped by Dick Duncan. In 1943-44 slightly more than 200 tons ranging from 19 percent to 23 percent zinc was marketed at the Metals Reserve Co. stockpile by Hammond and Reed of Goodsprings.

Ore has been mined from an open-cut to a maximum depth of 35 feet below the surface. There appears to be three tunnels (length unknown) of which the adits are currently sealed.
