"Mrs. Stewart's neighbor, who was out hunting that day, confirmed that he had never seen such a thing either."

I'm too lazy to look up where Sheridan is, but would be near area 54 in Nevada.

It's not such a wild assumption when you consider there are 1,131 mines in the immediate area. I imagine most of them are/were small (one-man or family) operations without a lot of safety protocols.
