Oak Springs is another site now located inside the Nellis Air Force Base Bombing and Gunnery Range. There was only limited activity from the time the site was discovered in 1905 and abandoned in 1940. Small amounts of gold, silver, copper, and chrysocolla were mined during that period. Chrysocolla is easily mistaken for turquoise.
