Gauley Mine is a location in the Forest region of Appalachia in 2103. It can be found southeast of Landview Lighthouse.

Background[edit | edit source]

An old mine from before the Great War, Gauley Mine was one of several locations salvaged by the Responders, mostly for its supply of dynamite.[1] The pre-War address of the mine was 881 Interstate 59, south of Morgantown.[2]

Layout[edit | edit source]

The exterior is a large, shallow cave with a large wood facade and a boxcar and forklift in front. At the back of the cave is a door entrance to the interior. The exterior has a few random boxes and lanterns, as well as a weapons workbench upstairs in the wooden section.

Inside, a vestibule leads to stairs on the left, a locker room on the right, and a long tunnel ahead with railroad tracks. The tunnel descends and turns left. Opposite the turn is a shack with random boxes and the entrance to a tunnel with radiation barrels on the right. The tunnel continues on a winding descent, with dead ends to the sides, until a final end next to a hallway.

The hallway leads to a machine room with several levels. At the bottom is an armor workbench and a keypad-locked supply cage. The cage can be closed and opened by a button from within. Inside of the keypad-locked supply cage, there is a hole in the wall leading to a locked door with a card reader, requiring the correct ID-card to unlock.

Downward stairs lead to a tunnel entrance, illuminated by fungi. This tunnel leads to a large open chamber with uphill rail tracks and a second entrance to the interior from the Forest. The rails uphill lead to a dead end. A steamer trunk around the corner from the second entrance contains a treasure map.

The small second entrance, next to a small shack, is located to the northeast of the map marker, at the end of an uphill railroad detour south of the railroad bridge.

Notable loot[edit | edit source]
