I know that this place was originally a mining town before the NCR took it over. I think they mined gold before the war.”— Private Edwards
Searchlight East gold mine consists of a single large cavern with a group of Viper gunslingers inside. After the first group is killed and the Courier reaches the back of the cave, a second group of four Viper gang members will spawn at the entrance. There is also a hollowed-out rock on top of the rocky out-cropping across from the entrance.
Searchlight East gold mine appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
