Two Utah-based companies, the Salt Lake Tungstonia Mines Company and the Utah-Nevada Mining and Milling Company, became active in the area in 1914 and both began to construct mills in 1915. The camp grew to about 25 during 1915 and by the summer of 1916, the camp had a population of 50, several saloons and stores, a boardinghouse, and several wood-frame buildings. Operations were mostly unsuccessful and by early 1918 most of the residents had moved. The district was abandoned until 1935 when new tungsten operations were begun and lasted until 1942 when the site was abandoned.
