It is a fairly steep climb up to the mine, as it is to all of the mines in this area. Note the old tram cables.

The Accident mine (No. 60, pl. 30) is on the west side of Porter Wash, 5 miles due south of Goodsprings, in the Goodsprings Mining District, in Clark County. The mine was located in 1901, Little work was done until 1911, and then again 1n 1919. The mine has several openings, but most of the ore was produced by the main tunnel. The minerals extracted were gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc. Lead and zinc were the primarily minerals removed, and the others were beneficial byproducts of the zinc & lead extractions.
