I know those Legion bastards are tough but my friends won't last long with all the radiation in there.Private Renolds on Techatticup mine

The Techatticup mine is a location in the Mojave Wasteland, located south-east of Camp Nelson. It contains a variety of Legion troops who have captured two NCR troopers.


Also known colloquially in the past as Knob Hill Mine, this hole in the ground is at the turnaround at the end of the road from Nelson and seems to have been a dumping ground, or storage area for radioactive waste that the Legion now occasionally utilizes.[1]


After a short winding path from the entrance, there is a small chamber with Legion troops, and paths leading left and right.

To the left is a path leading downwards to a large, irradiated chamber with a group of eight Caesar's Legion members including Alexus, the Legion leader, who has a key to the storage areas on the right path containing NCR prisoners. Along the downward path, there are two Average locked gates with various weapons and armor within.

To the right is a short path leading upwards to a small chamber with four Legion troops and two locked gates for two storage areas, each containing a tied-up prisoner and some loot.

Behind the scenes

The Techatticup Mine is based on the Eldorado Canyon Mine to the east of Nelson, and is named after the nearby Techatticup Cove on the Colorado river.
