Ansari notes two mills were present: Dana Mill (1860s) and Spring Valley Mill (1870s). According to Nevada and Her Resources (1894): "The ledge is strong and has been opened on the surface by well known gold producers at many different points from Spring valley to Devil's Gate a distance of about two miles. A tunnel following the course of the ledge from Spring valley to Devil's Gate would strike the Silver City mines at a depth of about 500 feet and would open an immense mineral section through almost the entire length of which luring inducements would be offered the miner to prospect and it would afford employment to at least a thousand men It is in every respect equal to the Pine Grove and Silver Peak properties." Stretch, 1867, notes that several of the abandoned mines in the Spring Valley District are receiving new attention, with some being relocated and a ten stamp mill being erected (pg. 14).
