Spud Mountain (Elevation 5544') is just outside the outer northeastern range of the Bradshaw Mountains. It is within the confines of State Trust Land, while a portion of its eastern flank is located within the Incorporated area of the Town of Dewey-Humboldt. Most of the mountain is zoned residential and portions of its southeast is zoned Industrial. In the future it will have homes. Immediately west on its lower eastern ridges is the site of the former Iron King Mine, which maintained mining operations beginning in the late 1890's. Operations included extracting, milling, and concentrating solid rock ores for lead, zinc, copper, gold, and silver.
