Ruby Hill mine

The Ruby Hill mine is a location in the Mojave Wasteland, nestled in a rock facing west.


The main room of the mine features several lakelurks. Going up the stairs and down the path leads to a large water-filled cavern with more lakelurks. Under the water there is a round table with four chairs, four human skeletons in or near a chair, and the corpse of a super mutant brute floating at the water's surface. On the table is a deck of cards with two cards dealt in front of each seat, 1 up and 1 down, as if the four skeletons had been engaged in a game of Blackjack.

Notable lootEdit


  • Standing at the entrance to the mine (outside), facing away, follow the rock immediately to your left. Just a few feet from the entrance there is a hollowed-out rock with random loot. Located south by southwest of this location is a grave (random item) near the cliff face. Often, there will be a bighorner bull near the grave.
  • The dead Jackal gang member in the lake room with Pushy carries a worn key, which fits the explosive crates on the island in the lake.
  • The northernmost dead end has two explosive crates.
  • There is an exit behind this dead end but cannot be accessed (can be seen if entering the cave with a marker outside the cave, 2 markers will be shown but the second exit is yet to be discovered).


Ruby Hill mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
