What Was

Discovered and mostly active in the 1870's and 1880's. The La Panta Mine is said to have produced $300,000 in ore, mostly gold, but by 1936 the property was idle and the equipment removed. (Mines of Churchill and Mineral County)

What is

Not really a ghost town per se, but this was a productive mine with some support structures, one of which is still standing.
