I heard from a friend that the large headframe and ore bin at the Nevada Quicksilver Mine has recently been burned down. I don't know if this was done by vandals, or a lightning strike. Either way, it's another sad loss of a great historical relic.

Here are some photos I took when I was there three years ago:
