Meet The Comstock Miners

Steve Russell - Senior GeologistSteve Russell
Senior Geologist

My name is Steve Russell and my family has lived on the Comstock for four generations, and I’m a third generation Comstock miner. My great grandfather and great grandmother came here from the Alleghany mining district on the Mother Lode in 1883, to live and work on the Comstock. My grandmother, Sadie Smith, was one of their seven children, and a long time Virginia City grammar school teacher. Grandfather Smith also worked as a miner and so did several of my great uncles. My mother was also raised in Virginia City and attended school here. After meeting and marrying my father, who was stationed in Reno during WWII, she returned with him to California after the war to resume his career in the Kern County oilfields. The annual summer trips to visit my Virginia City relatives were some of the highlights of my youth, and I knew early on that I too wanted to live and work on the Comstock.
