I know that this place was originally a mining town before the NCR took it over. I think they mined gold before the war.Private Edwards

The Searchlight North Gold Mine is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is found northeast of Camp Searchlight and east of Highway 95.[1]


To the left of the entrance is a hollowed-out rock. The mine is a small cavern that contains a few feral trooper ghouls and two glowing ones. There is a crossroads a short distance from the entrance. The left passageway has three ghouls and a Hard locked gate, and inside the gate is a cavern that contains a small amount of ammunition amidst a few empty crates.

The right passageway leads to another crossroads with a ghoul standing between the two paths. To the left are some crates with various foods and drinks. To the right of the shelves on the floor are three sticks of dynamite. To the right of the second crossroads is a passageway that leads down a corridor with a glowing one in the passageway.

Progressing past the glowing one, there are other crossroads. The right passageway is blocked and to the left is a glowing one and a dead prospector. The prospector has the key to the Hard locked gate and some ammunition.

Notable loot

  • 12 sticks of dynamite - Three sticks in the room to the left after taking the right passage, and 9 sticks near a dead prospector who holds the key at the end of the righthand passage.
  • Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap - On the crate in the alcove, to the right following the junction.


The Searchlight North Gold Mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
