(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."

Jungo Road (aka Nevada State Route 49 is the road from Winnemucca to Gerlach. Apparently, this road is also known as Nevada Road #2048 (?). Near the Black Rock Desert playa, it is known as "The High Road.". From its western terminus between Gerlach and Empire, it passes near Frog (Garrett Ranch) Springs, Trego, Sulphur and Jungo, before terminating at Winnemucca.

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