The Mary Mine, Jessup Nevada.

Jessup District, Churchill Co., Nevada, USA

Jessup Nevada. This rare original photograph shows the Mary Mine in the remote Jessup mining district. The discovery of Gold and Silver was made by Prospectors in February of 1908. Some ore with a value of $100 a ton was being shipped from the Mary and other mines in the district at the end of 1908. At this period of time, about 300 people lived in the small town of Jessup. The small boom didn’t last long as the Gold and Silver rich veins were not deep enough to sustain the mines. Sporadic mining took place over the next decade with disappointing results.

Miners Union #220

Goldfield District, Esmeralda Co., Nevada, USA

Goldfield Nevada. This rare key tag belonged to C. H. Mackinnon, a director of the famous Miners Union Local #220. This Union was widely known in the United States during the years of 1907 - 1908 when strikes between the Union and Mine owners became volatile enough to where the Nevada Governor called on President Roosevelt to send federal troops to Goldfield as tensions were very high and violence was imminent. George S. Nixon was the U.S. Senator of Nevada and the President of The Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company, George Wingfield was the vice president of the company and was one of the richest men in Nevada, they were the leaders of the mining district and the heads of the Mine Owners Association. They had enough influence to sue and dissolve Local #220 in 1908, Nixon and Wingfield would never hire Union miners again to work their properties.
