GOLDFIELD, NEVADA For a 20-year period prior to 1900 the mining in Nevada fell into a slump that cast the entire state into a bleak depression and caused the loss of one-third of the population. 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 - 20,000 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. The city had a railroad that connected into Las Vegas . Between 1903- 40 a total of $86,765,044 in metals was produced here.
