Located at Tungsten, formerly Hub, on the west flank of Wheeler Peak in the Snake Range.

The Lincoln district borders the Tungsten district on the south but, according to the original description, never included it.

Other Names: Augusta, Hilltop, Alpine, Clan Alpine
Commodities: tungsten, gold, silver, lead, molybdenum
The Tungsten Mountain district is centered around Tungsten Mountain on the eastern slope of the northern Clan Alpine Mountains and extends from Rocky Canyon on the south to Stone Canyon on the north. Todd and Welton (1866) placed the historic Augusta district in this area, east of the present Bernice district. The General Land Office map (1866) shows the Augusta district to cover most of the central Clan Alpine Mountains, including Augusta Canyon and the present Tungsten Mountain district.
The Tungsten Mountain district extends north into Humboldt County, covering the mountains along county line, north of the Augusta Mountains and east of Humboldt Salt Marsh. Tungsten Mountain district is sometimes included in the Alpine district, to the south.
