The first mine discovered in the Robinson Mining District, was the Elijah, near Lane City. The famed open-pit copper mines of Eastern Nevada including the Liberty Pit, largest in the state, are located in this mining district. Through the first half of the 20th century, this area produced nearly a billion dollars in copper, gold and silver. The huge mounds visible from here are waste rock which was removed to uncover the ore. Lane City, originally called Mineral City, was settled in 1869 and had a population of 400. At Mineral City was the Ragsdale Station--a hotel and a stage station.
