    Historical Context

    The Florence-Goldfield Mining Company was incorporated in South Dakota and had operations in Nevada's Goldfield District.

     

    Thomas G. Lockhart - who has signed this piece as the company President - together with his longtime business associate and financial backer, A. D. Parker, purchased control of the as yet undeveloped Florence claims in 1904. The mines were developed under Lockhart's astute management and became one of the foremost producers in the district. In 1906-1907 Lockhart and Parker smartly avoided consolidation with the other producing mines when Senator George Nixon and George Wingfield were assembling their mining interests in the district.

     

    The Florence Company became the only large producer not to be controlled by the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company and between 1906 and 1909 the Florence mines produced over $6,000,000 worth of ore which was a little less than one quarter of the total production of the Goldfield district.

     

    However, production soon dried up and the company was idled in 1916.
