Goldfield, located in Esmeralda County, Nevada began as a mining camp in May 1903 with a population of less than a dozen. In about six years it grew to around 15,000 as a result of several large strikes. The district produced a tremendous amount of ore. George Wingfield was among those to gain prominence in Goldfield. The community's boom was short-lived. The town still exists, but is a shadow of its former self. By 1904 Goldfield began shipping rich ore, and soon brick and stone buildings were built. A railroad connected Goldfield and Tonopah to the main lines, and operated until 1947. A few of these historic buildings still stand as reminders of Goldfield's boom years. Mining peaked in 1910, with over $10 million being produced by the Goldfield Consolidated Mining Company. By 1918 major mining had ceased, although in the 1980s open-pit operations developed near-surface veins and microscopic gold and leached dump material.
