In 1907 Gold and Silver was discovered in the area known as the Jumbo District (West Comstock). A small town was established. The town consisted of a Post Office, Grocery Store, Hotel, assay office and of course some saloons. The town was known as Jumbo Nevada. Between 1909 and 1915 one 5 stamp and two 10 stamp mills were built. Unfortunately the mills were shut down around 1912 due to the low-grade material to keep the mill in operation. The remains of the mill foundations can be seen about a ¼ mile down the valley on the left, from the Cache location.
