(surveying the) Desert Area near Jungo Nevada 1931

Jungo, located between Sulphur and Winnemucca, is the site of a former town. Jungo started in 1910 as a station to the Western Pacific Railroad. The post office opened on January 31, 1911 and closed on May 31, 1952.

Jungo is near the Jumbo Mine, which was a gold mine and the topic of a few articles in 1936 from the New York Times. Herbert Hoover visited the mine and pronounced that the mine was worth holding on to. George Austin offered to pay for that advice and was told by Mr. Hoover "That kind of advice is free."

In 2012, Recology obtained a permit for a dump near Jungo. The permit was appealed in May, 2012 and Recology won the appeal.

  • Dayton Lummis, "Dust Devils," p. 72. By 1963, Jungo was deserted, but the hotel had not yet burned.
  • http://nvghosttowns.topcities.com/humboldt/humlst.htm Jungo came into being in 1910 as a station when the Western Pacific Railroad was completed. Became the major shipping point for a huge area. A substantial town developed but by the 1930s, its usefulness was gone and Jungo faded. Since the 1940s, only a handful of hearty souls have lived here. A large hotel from the early days still stands as do a number of other buildings. (Dead link, 2-Dec-2013)
