Gold Butte, Nevada
Gold Butte, Nevada is a ghost town located in Clark County, Nevada that was established in 1908. Mining was active from about 1905, when gold was discovered in the area, through 1910. Little remains at the site: a couple of foundations, two graves, and several old mine shafts. 
The Gold Butte Mining District includes the territory south of Gold Butte lying between the Nevada-Arizona state line to the east and the Virgin River (now Lake Mead) to the west. Mining began in the 1880s. The total production from the district has been about $75,000. There has been prospecting and small-scale mining for gold, mica, magnesite, copper and zinc. No significant deposits were found. 
The Bundy standoff, which pertains in part to the Gold Butte area, was caused in spring 2014 as the result of a 20-year-old land use disagreement between the Bureau of Land Management and Cliven Bundy, a local rancher.
