SHIPPING & HANDLING: Shipping is subject to a minimum charge of $19.00. Shipping and handling cannot be estimated prior to invoicing as it is based on the size and weight of your purchase. Additional shipping and handling costs, if required, will be re-invoiced for the balance due. Items are not shipped until the invoice is completely paid. Many buyers purchase a number of lots. Every effort will be made to include all lots in a single shipping charge calculated to cover the weight and size.
The mining equipment in this sale comes from the Combined Metals Reduction Company in Fish Lake Valley in far west-central Nevada. The company’s name comes from their first large mine of lead, zinc and silver in Pioche. Their mines tended to be in eastern Nevada and western Utah. Their huge mill can still be seen today just west outside of Pioche on the eastern Nevada border. Like any active mining company, they had a large equipment yard. We’ve chosen about 100 lots from the yard of mine equipment that will be of interest to collectors, amusement parks, and mining companies.  

We also want to point out that there is more – a lot more. We are the agent to sell it all, and welcome your inquiries. The equipment yard is one quarter mile square, holding large numbers of mine parts for both above ground and underground operations. The yard has been idle for two decades, isolated in a very dry climate with little degradation to steel. AT present we have no formal inventory, but welcome inquiries. And it gets better. The machine and maintenance shop has been put back together and is now run by a young and capable machinist who can refurbish almost anything. He is available (on separate contract with him) to refurbish much of the machinery there.

All of the equipment is FOB Fish Lake Valley, and we welcome your arranged visit. Please call us for an appointment. Fish Lake Valley is halfway between Tonopah and Bishop, not far off Highway 95 near Coaldale, Columbus Marsh, or Candelaria.
