My super duper sleuthing skills came up with nothing about this town but we won’t stop looking. From what we can tell, it’s not worth looking for but we will go scout the area if we can and update this article once we know for sure.

Tolicha is situated in Nye county 47 miles southeast of Goldfield by the county road, or 68 miles south via the Tonopah & Tidewater Railroad to the station of Ancram, 12 miles due north of the new camp. An excellent trucking road with a firm foundation connects the railroad with a firm foundation connects the railroad with the camp, and it is believed that this will prove the popular gateway. Ancram is the name for a sidetrack that has been seldom used, but with the development of activity at Tolicha the railroad will move the sidetrack several hundred yards away from a stretch of sand that now interferes with handling heavy shipments on trucks.
