Treasure Hill - Portrait of a Silver Mining Camp by W. Turrentine Jackson.
In 1868, the discovery of an exceptionally rich silver ore on Treasure Hill in eastern Nevada led to an intense but short-lived mining boom. The White Pine Mining District was quickly organized, and in time a new Nevada county was created with that name.
W. Turrentine Jackson's study of Treasure Hill has endured as a classic case study of a typical mining district in the western United States.
