The twins need a facelift for sure. Pretty run down at this point, but still worth a drive by.

The Giant Prospector Twins are bigger than my jeep!

Big prospector statue.

Giant Prospector

Kneeling prospector with gold pan and holstered revolver, 10+ feet high, apparently concrete. Almost certainly NOT a muffler man. At the corner of the parking lot at the Gold Strike Inn, Jean, Nevada, right across from the gas station. No fence or anything, walk right up to him if you want.

March 2005 - Diane G. sent us this photo and reports there are two giant prospectors at the Gold Strike Inn. (They're not really giant, but they are big and good for photo-posing.)
