Crescent City

Following the silver discoveries that led to the creation of the Pahranagat District in 1865, the Crescent Silver Mining Company erected the five-stamp Crescent or List Mill at Crescent Spring in 1865 and Crescent City was born. After only operating for ten days, the Alameda Silver Mining Company overtook operations. By 1869, the mill was enlarged to ten stamps with four furnaces, five pans, and two 20-hp motors. Mining declined beginning in 1869, and the mill was closed by 1871. A short revival occurred in 1873 when about 2400 ounces of silver was produced at the Crescent Mill, but it was short lived and the mill was ultimately dismantled and relocated.
