small town, SW Nev., a former gold-mining center. Gold was discovered there in 1902, and after an early period of disappointment, large yields of high quality gold were extracted. A rush in 1903 built a remarkable city that had a theater, a large hotel (still standing), and fine residences. A strike by the miners caused federal troops to be brought into Goldfield in 1907. Production reached its height in 1910. When the boom ended in 1918, Goldfield declined as fast as it had risen.
