The Frederickson mine (No. 42, pl. 30) lies 800 feet south of the main road over Columbia Pass, 2 miles west of Goodsprings, in the Goodsprings Mining District, in Clark County. The Frederickson mine was first located by Jesse Jones in 1887, but no assessment work was done, and it was relocated by J.A. Egger in 1905. The explorations above the 100-foot level, except some stopes, were made by Wadey and Frederickson prior to 1912, but those below that level were made by the Goodsprings Dividend Mining Company from 1915 to 1917. Since then it has been leased several times.

The workings of the mine explore a zone in the Yellowpine limestone. The minerals extracted were gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc.
