Jarbidge is a small community town in the U.S. State of Nevada and is located at an elevated height of about 6220 ft. from the ground level. The town is situated in the County of Elko. It is placed just on the edge of Jarbidge Wilderness.
Jarbidge is principally a remote area and is located on the western part of the Jarbidge river. The area became famous due to the practice of gold mining in the early part of the 20th century. Then it all stopped suddenly. However, recently orders have been issued by the administration to start the mining operation again. This is believed to gradually transfom the economy of the region and make its people wealthier.
