Gold and silver discoveries during the mid-1800s brought hundreds of prospectors trekking across the eastern Mojave. Ephemeral camps sprang up throughout the desert as miners discovered copper and silver in nearby mountains. Ranchers moving into high, grassy valleys, exploited the market for beef created by the miners, and soon diveloped commerical operations. The Sourthern Pacific Railway crossed the Mojave in 1883, giving ranchers access to larger markets east and west, and their operations expanded. Ranching and mining continue today.
