The Coyote Mines is a location in the Mojave Wasteland, located northeast of Camp Searchlight.


There are two notable sections to this area, the house and the mine itself. Neither the house nor the mine have any hostile creatures or traps. The house is backed up on high ground, and around behind it (to the northeast), is where the mine entrance can be located.

House interiorEdit

The Coyote Mine house has two floors, containing sleeping quarters, many storage containers and a working jukebox. There's food to loot in the kitchen and 3 first aid boxes scattered throughout the house. It has the same layout as the Regulator HQ in Fallout 3.

Mine interiorEdit

The mine is somewhat small and simply laid out. A short way from the mine entrance, the path splits. To the left is a camping area, complete with sleeping facilities, two prospectors may or may not be inhabiting this area. There's some miscellaneous toolbox junk, two healing powders and a hydra in this area. To the right, there are a couple of alcoves containing some dynamite, frag grenades, and minor loot.

Notable lootEdit



The Coyote Mines appear only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Coyote Mines likely correspond to the real-life Coyote Gold Mine, located just north of Searchlight, Nevada.


  • PCIcon pc A few of the sticks of dynamite inside the mine may fall through the ground when the others are picked up. They may or may not "bounce back" and allow the player to grab them.[verified]

A way around this is to throw either a stick of dynamite or a grenade into the shelf below the BBs (or place one of the nearby fire extinguishers there and shoot it) and hope the BBs do not get stuck behind the furniture.[verified]
