The Mina Elementary School was constructed in 1925 and has been owned by Mineral County School District (MCSD) since. The Mina Elementary Library, a duplex located next to the Mina Elementary building, was constructed in 1940. Based on information obtained through the interview process, this building was used as a library and teacher housing quarters until the school closed in 2001.
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) was conducted in October 2016. Based on the findings of the Phase I ESA, additional environmental investigation was recommended to identify potential releases of petroleum hydrocarbons, asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, and vapor migration into the Mina Elementary building via the unfinished basement with open access to the crawlspace beneath the building. Environmental reports are available upon request.
