Sessions Wheeler describes Varyville as being on the Eastern side of the Black Rock Range, north of Hardin City. Wheeler states that Ladue Vary discovered gold and silver in a canyon and would not take less than $100,000. Vary never sold, and lived on the property raising hay until 1906, when he was taken to Winnemucca where he died at the age of 96.
