The Groom Mining District is located in Lincoln, Nevada. The name "Groom" appeared in the late 1870s as a result of English financing of the Conception Mines by the Groome Lead Mines Limited. The area contained mostly low-grade ores of silver and lead. J.B. Osborne and his partners acquired the claims at Groom and patented them in 1876.
