The Silver Peak mine is actually connected to the Silver Peak mine shack. The mine is home to many cazadores and the legendary cazador. They entered the mine by means of a hole, high on the wall into the large cavern. Outside are two bighorner bulls which will attack immediately upon fast travel to the location, unless the player character has the Animal Friend perk.
Inside the mine at the back of the great chamber with the cazadores is a tunnel that leads up to the upper level with a number of crates and a gate. Entering this tunnel triggers a number of cazadores and a legendary cazador to spawn in the main chamber. After three days, if the legendary cazador and its "acolytes" are killed, up to seven more will re-spawn (3 x 100% chance, 1 x 75% chance, 3 x 50% chance, unique random encounter).
- Tumblers Today - Near one of the lockers on the right upon entering the shack.
- Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap - On one of the tables, right in front of the entrance.
- Remnants power helmet - On the top level of the cazador cave, behind a fence door.
- Several crates containing explosives, including C-4 plastic explosive, plasma grenades, frag mines, frag grenades, dynamite, pulse grenades and pulse mines - One crate is found behind the fenced gate containing the Remnants power helmet, one is found outside the cave, and two are found in a smaller room amongst a pile of cinderblocks and steel beams.
The Silver Peak mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
PC Playstation 3 Xbox 360 Upon fast-traveling to this location a few bighorners, cazadores, and a few giant mantises will spawn right in front of you, this is a very dangerous situation for a low-level player to be in. These animals will respawn every 72 hours and this event will happen again if you fast travel to this location after this time. [verified]
