Administraitve History

The Juniata Consolidated Silver Mining Company, located in Aurora, Esmeralda County, Nevada, was incorporated in 1872, long after Aurora's mining boom. According to the State Mineralogist's Biennial Report for 1871-1872, mining activity was quiet in the Esmeralda District except for "some good ore" taken from the Juniata mine. Work on the Juniata was reported in 1873-1874, but in 1875-1876, no developments occurred. In 1877, the Esmeralda district was revived with the incorporation of the Real del Monte Mine, located on a portion of the Juniata patent, H. M. Yerington, President.
