This district is at Gold Mountain, about 5 miles south of Tonopah. First known as Gold Mountain (Spurr, 1903), its name was changed to Divide following a second wave of discoveries in 1917 (Paher, 1970). Divide district was centered around the divide on the Tonopah-Goldfield road, west of Gold Mountain.
The Gold Reef district was located a few miles to the southeast, on the southeast flank of Gold Mountain; both areas are included in the present Divide district. The Nevada Miner (1902) mentions a Dutch Mountain district, located 6 miles south of Tonopah, that was probably in this area.
