The Silver Peak mine is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. It is up the rocky embankment to the west of Nevada 157 just off the path to Jacobstown.


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).

Notable loot


The Silver Peak mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

These animals will respawn every 72 hours and this event will happen again if you fast travel to this location after this time. [verified]
