Most of the primary mine shafts have been sealed and fenced off. But if you don't mind a little walking, you can find some open shafts nearby. There are at least 3 vehicles on the property and cold storage shack. Within walking distance is a desert cemetery. There are 5 graves, one of them being Riley.

    Larry M. Vredenburgh: "The Sextette mine, also known as the Standard Number 2, consisted of eight claims. The mine, situated north of the Copper King, shares similar geology and was developed for copper. The claims were located by Richard Bayley Gill and W. M. Fee. They bonded the mine to the Johnnie Consolidated Gold Mining Company of Nevada. By January 1906 the Johnnie Company had sunk a 256 food deep shaft, as well as other shafts and tunnels, and installed a new hoist. They shipped a total of four rail car loads of high-grade (22%) copper ore in 1906, each 40-ton car load returned $1,105. But apparently the mine did not pay, for in August 1907 Gill and Fee bonded the mine to a new concern."
