It is most unusual for a small mining camp that never produced much to last more than ten years. It was a cooperative effort by a group of people beginning in 1930 and ending in 1950. The camp never had more than twenty-five at any one time. The total production value was only about $5,000 during all those years. The site is now part of the Nellis Air Force Base Bombing and Gunnery Range.
