The Super X Turquoise Mine is located just north of Indian Creek and is known for its very high grade deep blue spider web turquoise. It has not been productive for many years. The mine however has been rumored to be for sale in private circles for a number of years. The mine was first discovered in 1939-40 by Ted and Harold Johnson. Ted and Harold Johnson along with Dick Edgar went to this area in search of Turquoise. They found crumbled nuggets of float and followed them to the deposit source. This was the first mine in this area, which later developed many very famous Turquoise producing mines. The Super X Turquoise mine was named after the Super X Dynamite Company. The original location was a cut in the ground that was 12 feet deep, 50 feet long, and 20 feet wide. The initial production of the Super X Turquoise mine was about 300 pounds of material. Many old time Turquoise miners (pre-1975) said that this Turquoise “was the best Turquoise to ever be mined in Nevada.” Unfortunately, without written information in books and/or pictures, most oral history dies with the storyteller, so most modern miners and collectors of Turquoise know very little about the Super X Turquoise mine and its colors or history. This is the case with many of the Nevada Turquoise mines.
