The Vernal Mining Company of Goldfield was incorporated in Arizona in 1904 with offices and mines in Goldfield, Nevada. The company had two claims - which adjoined the Goldfield Bull Dog Mining Company - in Goldfield's Diamondfield district.
The company was organized and promoted by H. B. Lind. Lind arrived in Goldfield from Chicago where he practiced law. He had intended to remain a lawyer in Goldfield, but realized the mining industry provided a better chance at prosperity.
Lind also organized the General Extension Mining Company and the Nevada Hills Extension Mining Company. He also had large interests in the Rosebud Mining District, the Ubehebe Copper District and various others of the bonanza camps of Nevada.
