or Bovard Mining District, Nevada
Mine, what a dump!
The district was first discovered by prospectors from Rawhide back in
1907. The Nevada Rand and the Gold Pen Mines were located in 1908 and the
silver-gold ore from the mines was treated over at the Rawhide Mill.
1919 The Gold Pen Mining Company built a 20-ton amalgamating mill which
started production in 1920. The Nevada Rand Mining Company was
incorporated in 1916 and owned several of the properties in the area. The
property consisted of 7 claims, a 450ft shaft, and 2500ft of workings
equipped with a hoist and assay office.
The Copper Mountain Mine put out more than $125,000, the Gold Pen
Mine is said to have produced $200,000, and the Nevada Rand $50,000.
