Significance: The Juniata (Chesco) Mill is a significant example of early 20th century mining in Nevada. The property conveys information regarding the historical and technological changes in mining practices in Nevada. It has significant interpretive potential because of surviving elements. The site was determined to be eligible under criteria A and C of the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) by the USFS and Nevada SHPO. Hardesty's "symbolic" criterion is also met as this site and its remaining equipment have public educational and cultural value. The Juniata (Chesco) Mill is a flotation mill, representing an early 20th century mining technology. The mill operated off and on from 1939 into the 1950s, enduring in a vacillating industrial environment.
