Jabez Chase and a group of men formed The Black Hills Gold Mining Company in Cheyenne, WY, and established the very first quartz mill on October 7th, 1876. Two of their earliest mines were The Hidden Treasure & Esmeralda Mines in Central City, South Dakota. The manager was Capt. C.V. Gardner. The pulverizer on the quartz mill proved to be inadequate for the tonnage and had to be dismantled at the end of 1876. At that point, the company also entered litigation with the Aurora mine. Central City was named after the Colorado town.
