They established a 100-stamp mill, cyanide tanks and then constructed the 17 1/2 mile Silverpeak railroad from Blair to the Tonopah & Goldfield main line. A post office ran from 1906 to 1915. There was also numerous saloons, a 2 story hotel, and a population of about 700. The mill closed in 1915 when low grade ore could no longer be milled profitably.
