Rhyolite near Logan Springs, 1871

Logan, Nevada, is a ghost town[1] located in the hills about 9.5 mi (15.3 km) west of Hiko and 2.5 mi (4.0 km) south of Mount Irish Peak. Logan had its brief existence as a mining camp when silver ore was discovered in 1865[2] in the Mount Irish Range just to the north in Silver Canyon on the east flank of Mount Irish.[3][4][5]

A small spring of water called Logan Springs provided an essential resource for survival in such a harsh arid region.
