The Quartz Hill Gold Mining Company own 90 feet, upon which is a shaft something more than 200 feet deep, well timbered, having two bucket ways, and a fair ore-vein in the bottom. Thirty or forty feet above the bottom of the shaft a level has been run the whole length of the mine and the back mostly taken out, paying in stamp mill, $35 a ton, average three feet of crevice crushed. The hoisting is done by whim. The Company have a compact 12-stamp, steam mill in the gulch near the mill, which commenced running in December 1864, and did well, producing in three months 480 ounces of gold. It was subsequently stopped together with work on the mine, because the whole institution was on too small a scale to work to advantage. [The Mines of Colorado by Hollister]

Nevadaville was a gold-mining town in Gilpin County, Colorado, United States. It was also known in the 1860s and 1870s as Nevada City. The post office at Nevadaville was called the Bald Mountain post office, to avoid confusion with other Nevadas and Nevadavilles. Nevadaville started in 1859, soon after John H. Gregory found the first lode gold in what is now Colorado. At the time, the townsite was in western Kansas Territory. The town grew to house the miners working the Burroughs lode and the Kansas lode. The population was predominantly Irish. The town was one of the most important mining settlements in the area. The community is now largely a ghost town, although not completely deserted. [wikipedia] The Nevada district centered around Nevada Gulch, a tributary of North Clear Creek; near Gregory Gulch SW of Central City. [Colorado Mining Districts by Dunn] Ken Prag Collection
