Eden Nevada History

I found a newspaper reference in 1907 states: Mr. and Mrs. Harding are residents of a little mining camp known as Eden, in the Belle Hellen district, about fifty miles from Tonopah.

From the Nevada Bureau of Mining and Geology:

Ball (1907) recounts that the first locations in the district were made in February 1905. Lessors were reportedly working near the mouth of F.den Creek in 1906 and 1907, and the presence of stamp mill remains there indicates early mining activity (Kral, 1951). Exploration was done in the district in 1923-24 and 1926-34, but no production resulted from that activity. There is no recorded production from the district and Kral (1951) assumes a total district production of less than $10,000.

When this district was visited in the Spring of 1986, new roads were in evidence to a new mill site at the Southern Gold Mining property near the head of Eden Creek. Mill equipment had been installed and appeared ready for use. Drilling equipment was present on new drill pads prepared east of the mill site and appeared to be awaiting the spring thaw to commence work for the

According to the Mineral Resources of Nye County (January 1951) the following properties are associated with the Eden district:

  • Nevada Triumph: 17 gold claims worked by George H. Chubey from their initial location in 1926 until his death in 1943. The workings consist of two adits, several shallow shafts, cuts, and trenches. Chubey is buried at the Eden Creek Ranch Cemetery.
  • South Gold Mining Company: Gold claims first worked in 1930 through World War II. The workings consist of several adits. Improvements included a 35-ton mill installed in 1938. Ore was transported to this mill via gravity tram. A small camp associated with the mine consisted of 12 buildings.
  • Oro Cache Mining and Milling Company: Organized in 1929 and explored until 1934 when bank closure curtailed financing. Workings consist of several shafts and an adit. A small house was built at a nearby spring.
  • Golden Crown Group: Owned by the Giovani B. Fallini estate, it was first discovered in 1906 though most of the work was done between 1923 and 1924. The workings consist of two tracked adits. Fallini, who died in 1941, is buried in the nearby Eden Creek Ranch Cemetery.


  • January 1905 – John Adams discovered silver and gold ore was discovered in the Eden district at the head of Eden Creek (then known as Little Mill Creek)
  • Summer 1905 – The camp had a population of forty
  • Summer 1907 – The camp began to fade and soon only one of the two discoverers was left
