There are two sections in this area, a house and the mine itself. Neither the house nor the mine has any hostile creatures or traps. The mine entrance is opposite the house to the northeast. Feral ghouls from Camp Searchlight will occasionally roam near the house.
The mine features a simple layout. A short distance from the mine entrance, the path splits. To the left is a camping area, complete with a bedroll, miscellaneous toolbox junk, two healing powders, and a Hydra. Two prospectors may be living in this section. To the right, alcoves containing some dynamite, frag grenades, and minor loot can be found.
