The Singatse Mountains reside between the Pinenut and Wassuk Range. These mountains and hills are rich in copper. Miners begin staking claims in the 1860's the problem is nobody knew how to smelt the copper till later in the 1800's and into the early 1900's. Therefore allot of boom towns rose up down some of these old wagon trails such as Nordyke, Wilson Canyon, Ludwig, Hudson, Thompson Smelter, Wabuska, Colony and of course Mason just to name a few. Ill take our viewers jeeping into the mountains of this range where eventually after trial and error I park right in front of the monolithic Blue Stone Mine entrance. At one time the Nevada Copper Belt Railroad traversed this small range having copper ore loaded to its cars to be unloaded to a local smelter for processing other times local ranchers, school children and other passengers simply used this shortline to visit small towns such as Mason. Today upon pulling up to the town site not much exist most of the newer part of town resides in the valley but up in this hills are remnants of the mill, mines and a few other foundations which are reminders as to what was! You can see the giant bluestone mill ruins kind of is reminiscent of what an ancient temple would like in a far off land. This is a beautiful mountain range so if you like beautiful desertscapes in the early morning of sunrise then your going to enjoy this little journey. You will also get to us drive right past one of the largest copper open pit mines in the country the Mason Valley Mines have been in operation for over a century and at one time they had other claims in the district and even connected with the Bluestone Mine underground.
