1) S. Bernstein / Tungsten / Nev. ?? GF 12 1/2c IT. 2) Owyhee / Conf. / Owyhee, Nev. // GD 5c IT. Although the original discovery in Tungsten was in 1869, there was little production until 1900 when a mining district was organized. In 1904 the Tungsten Mining and Milling Company purchased all claims. In 1909 it was bought out by what was the U.S. Tungsten Corporation. A small camp of 50 sprang up during 1910 but plunging ore prices forced closure of the mill in 1911.
