Silver Peak and Mineral Ridge Mine Adventure

On our drive to Silver Peak, we went by this "old homestead".  Could not find any info on it.  But interesting to be way out here in no-mans-land.
Silver Peak was founded in 1863.  A 10 stamp mill was built in 1865.  1948 the town burnt.  The town took a flop.  Then the  population and company's goes up and down. Now it is a active Lithium mining place.

The Mineral Ridge project is located ~6 km northwest of the town of Silver Peak and 56 km southwest of Tonopah in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The property consists of 616 mining claims totalling 5,010 hectares (12,380 acres). (copied from goggle)
It produced more than 626,000 ounces of gold.
