Goldfield

nevada mining

Goldfield, village in southwestern Nevada, seat of Esmeralda County. Goldfield flourished as a center of a gold-mining region after the discovery of gold nearby in 1903. Over $11 million worth of gold and other metals had been mined by 1910, but by 1918 extensive mining had almost exhausted gold deposits, and the population began to decline.
