A Indian Shoshone sheepherder was said to discovered the lode in 1970, on the south range of Bald Mountain in Lander County, Nevada where he stumbled upon a vein of turquoise on a hillside while tending his sheep. The Indian Mountain was owned and operated by Ed Mauzy and J.W. Edgar, both legends in Nevada turquoise mining. This mine hasn’t produced in over 20 years. Indian Mountain turquoise is rare and worth collecting if you can find it. It produced both blue and green turquoise, sometimes combined, with brown to black spider web.
