The Hilltop Nevada Mining Company was organized in 1920 and purchased the holdings of the defunct Kimberly company at a sheriff's auction. About 20 miners remained in the camp, as the Hilltop Nevada Company expanded its operations. The company spent $300,000 in 1922 to build a 150-ton flotation mill, which began operations in October. The mill was not a success and operated only until September 1923. The mill was moved to Dayton (Lyon County) in 1934. The company continued to mine the district until the late 1920s. By the time operations were curtailed in 1927, $1.5 million had been produced. After Hilltop Nevada closed, Hilltop became a virtual ghost town.
