Sloan is a mining camp found along the Long 15 Highway. It was once a place where workers earned a less than average wage, living by making cement for the NCR using the limestone from the quarry, until deathclaws infested the area. These New California Republic miners are now out of work, waiting for someone like the Courier to solve their deathclaw problem.
There is a generator outside the mining office in Sloan that provides power to Quarry Junction and is not assembled properly. Repairing the generator will complete the unmarked quest Power to the People.
If you ask Jas Wilkins about where she got her recipe she tells you about her Aunt that lived in Modoc and had a deathclaw in a shed until a stranger came into town and shot it in the eye. Also in Modoc was a cow with an injured leg you could heal, similar to Snuffles.
Upon fast traveling to the area or leaving one of the buildings in the camp, nearby Powder Gangers may attack the residents.
South of the town down the highway is a railway bridge. Under the bridge is the corpse of a Bright Follower. The corpse contains a Bright Brotherhood robe and an energy weapon.
You may overhear a worker talking about something he saw over the ridge, putting the Great Khan encampment on your map.
Snuffles counts as a guard dog and will see through your disguise if you have a negative reputation with the NCR and become hostile.

pc Sometimes, hearing a worker idly commenting about sighting some peoples on the ridge overlooking the quarry will not add the Great Khan encampment marker. Sometimes instead, the marker will be suddenly added to the map, even without the idle remark being heard. [verified]
