    History of Gold Point NV, Ghost Town

    Gold Point was initially called Lime Point for the nearby lime deposits found in 1868. Processing difficulties in the 1880's discouraged silver mining locally.

    Goldfield ore discoveries in 1902 stimulated area mining interest and high grade hornsilver was discovered here in 1908. The name was changed to Hornsilver & a typical mining camp development occurred. A newspaper, post office, stores, and saloons began operations, and a town of over 225 wood-frame buildings, tents, and shacks appeared.

    The camp assumed the name Gold Point after 1930 when more gold was being mined than silver. Miners were drawn away to essential World War II industries in October 1942, and major mining efforts ceased at Gold Point.

    Gold Point in the New Century

    Gold Point of the late 1800s, known as Lime Point, was a minor outpost that never had a post office and was likely completely abandoned on more than one occasion. It wasn't until the discovery of high grade silver ore that a rush to the location finally resulted in a permanent settlement.

    The 1908 rush resulted in Hornsilver being established and by may the camp had a post office and a newspaper. Newspapers declared that Hornsilver was the "latest wonder in Nevada mining districts" and that new stores were opening every week.

    In 1922 the Great Western mine, the largest producer at Hornsilver, was purchased by Charles Stoneham of the New York Giants baseball team. In 1932 the name of the town was changed to Gold Point due to the fact that more gold was being produced than silver.

    Comments on the workings, assay and remaining values

    • Gold was discovered in the Gold Mountain Mining District by Thomas Shaw in 1866, during the rush caused by the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode at Virginia City (Lincoln, 1923). The district was organized in 1868 (Ball, 1906). The principal mine in the area at that time, the Oriental, was discovered in 1871 and went into production around 1874 (Raymond, 1874). The Oriental Nine is geographically between the Rattlesnake Mine and the Courbet, Sunshine Annex, and Eldorado Number Three properties.

      Ore in the district reportedly brought up to $1,370 per ton and averaged around $173 per ton (Raymond, 1974).   At today's prices that's over $1800 a ton of high-grade material with an average of $250 per ton for low to mid-grade.

    Remaining AU/AG Values at Courbet

    The Courbet claim block includes twelve dumps of varying sizes and grades containing at least 6500 tons (6000 tonnes) of material with a gross value of $730,000 USD.  In addition a great deal of the Courbet vein remains and is oriented favorably for surface mining.  In addition, a vein on the northwest corner of the block which outcrops for 30 feet and is at least 60 feet deep assayed at $925/ton.
