Administrative History

Goldfield, Nevada, is most well-known for the mining boom that occurred between its settlement in 1901 and 1910 when peak production reached over $10 million dollars. Most major mining operations had ceased by 1920, although a number of mines continued operations into the 1940s. The Atlanta Mines Company incorporated in 1912 just after the peak mining had occurred in Goldfield. The company owned 74 acres in the Goldfield Mining District and was developed through its own shaft and through the workings of the Goldfield Merger Mines Company to a depth of 1750 feet. Mine workings continued through 1918 producing high-grade ore and medium-grade copper bearing ore.

In 1918, the Atlanta Mines Company was reorganized and incorporated in Nevada as the Reorganized Atlanta Mining Company. Officers for the reorganized company were: George Wingfield, president; W. E. Zoebel, vice president; C. F. Burton, secretary-treasurer; B. J. Henley and L. N. French, directors; and A. I. D’Arcy, manager. The Reorganized Atlanta owned the same 74 acres and included the Atlanta, Black Bear, and Union Jack mines. The claim adjoined the Florence and on the east and the Goldfield Consolidated on the north.

The Goldfield Deep Mines Company of Nevada was incorporated in 1920 as a merger between Reorganized Atlanta Mining Company, Goldfield Merger Mines Company, Reorganized Blue Bull Mining Company, C.O.D. Consolidated Mines Company, Goldfield Combination Mining Company, Milltown Mining Company, 5 claims of the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company and other small parcels of ground in the Goldfield Mining District.
