The Goldfield Deep Mines Company was incorporated in Nevada on May 26, 1920. The company had properties in the Goldfield District, Esmeralda County.
Esmeralda County is one of the original counties in Nevada, established in 1861. When it was organized, it comprised the part of the Nevada Territory south of the 39th parallel and east of Mason Valley. Esmeralda is the Spanish and Portuguese word for "emerald". An early California miner from San Jose, California, James Manning Cory, named the Esmeralda Mining District after Esmeralda the Gypsy dancer from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
