In February 2022, the BLM announced that they were accepting pre-scoping comments for the Mountain View Exploration Project, located north east of Squaw Reservoir along Highway 34.[1]

The Silver Bell Mine is part of the Mountain View Exploration Project.

History

In 1942, Giannelli describes the Mountain View mine and George Nash's nearby tungsten claim.[2]

The Mountain View mine is described in 1985 as being in the Deephole Mining District.[3]

In 2015, Allied Nevada, the company that operated Hycroft Mine at the time reported that Vista acquired the property from Newmont Capital.[4]
