Comstock Mining has been working diligently at placing compacted fill in lifts to an engineered design in the area above and around the Silver Hill Shaft.

The photo above was taken at the point that the new fill material was at approximately 18 feet above bedrock. The mine had 14 feet to go before reaching road level.

Comstock Mining’s next milestones are to obtain NDOT ‘s approval for the new shoofly access, complete the AT&T underground utility installation and conclude the temporary bypass construction.

The material from beneath the road was transferred to the company’s lined leaching facility.


Illustrated is the length and depth of the area of legacy shaft and old dump material.  The Silver Hill Shaft can be seen here bermed off for safety.


Shortly after the excavation began the Silver Hill Mine hoist foundation was uncovered.


The fill material consisting of historic mine dumps was removed from the area.


In mid-March, Comstock Mining began Phase 1 of the realignment of SR-342. A large area of the road located above and near the shaft was ripped out to start the excavation work..


After a major rain event in early February, State Route 342 (SR-342) was closed by the Nevada Department of Transportation due to signs of cracking and areas of sinking located beneath the roadway around the historic Silver Hill Shaft.
