The Barefoot Boy Mine is located in the Goodsprings Mining District, SW of Jean NV, in Clark County. 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.

Nevada has been a major producer of lead and zinc over the past century and a half, both of which play important roles in our economy. Most of the mines in this district were originally located in the 1880s, but were worked intermittently as late as the 1950s.
