The southeastern end of the range including the old mining area west of
Silver City is referred to as the Silver City Range. About 8.3 kilometres (5.2 mi) west of Silver City is the
De Lamar ghost town in
Jordan Creek below the mine workings on De Lamar Mountain to the south. The area was active in the late 1880s. In the 1970s mining began again with the development of
gold mines on De Lamar Mountain.
