The Silver Peak Mine is just off the path to Jacobstown.



The Silver Peak Mine is actually connected to the Silver Peak Mine shack. The Silver Peak Mine is home to many cazadores and the legendary cazador. They entered the mine by means of a hole, high on the wall in the large cavern containing cazadors. Outside are two bighorner bulls which will attack immediately if you fast travel to the location. Inside the mine at the back of the great chamber with the cazadores is a tunnel the leads up the upper level with a number of crates and a gate. Entering this tunnel triggers a number of cazadores and a legendary cazador to spawn in another chamber and sets them to move directly to and attack the player.

Notable loot


Silver Peak Mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

These animals will respawn every 72 hours and this event will happen again if you fast travel to this location after this time.
