Tamberlaine Nevada History and Photos

TAMBERLAINE - (1873-?)
T15N R64E Section 10. The site of TAMBERLAINE is located on the west side of the Schell Creek Range, a little southeast across the Steptoe Valley from Ely. Discoveries of good manganese ore were made by a party of Reno explorers in 1869, but it was not until the spring of 1873 that a town was laid out and named TAMBERLAINE.

Mining here has always been intermittent. In 1880, a body of silver ore was discovered. Some mining occurred during WWI and WWII and during the 1950's the TAMBERLAINE Mine was said to be the largest producer of manganese in the County.
