Behind the miner with his pick came the newspaperman with his pen, joining the saloon keeper, station agents and other merchants to turn a camp into a town. The failure of a newspaper was not necessarily due to over-optimism of editors. Success or failure of the newspaper was cast in the extent of the ore-bodies and the value of the metals. Capitalist, miner and editor took the gamble alike.

White Pine County has been very fortunate. Despite the short-lived nature of the camps, the area as a whole remained strikingly consistent. As one mining camp played out and was deserted, a new discovery would be made and new territory opened; the death of one camp was followed by the birth of another. The population and business establishments simply shifted, and the newspapers moved with them.

Ely Times remains as an excellent source for local news of White Pine County.
