"Lead SD-Former Home of Homestake Gold Mine" Lead by BLSM

Lead Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 5 photos

The town of Lead is perched on the side of several hills. Every thing is up and down. It was a booming town until the Homestake mine closed in 2002. The mine is in the middle of town. It is still under discussion on what to do with the big hole in the ground. Several are trying to have it made a federal experimental labratory beacause it is temperature controled and under ground. Federal law says they have to fill it in if another use is not found. It has turned into a government thing.
