Item 5.  Other Events and Regulation FD Disclosure.

At the 2004 Annual Meeting of the Stockholders of The Goldfield Corporation (the
"Company") on May 25, 2004, John H. Sottile, the Company's Chairman of the Board
of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer, made the following

At this point, I would like to turn to the management report and afterwards
provide you an opportunity to ask questions. I want to give you a snapshot of
the company's activities during 2003, discuss recent business, and give you an
outline of our strategy to continue maximizing shareholder value in the future.
I would encourage all of you to review the more detailed information which
can be found in our SEC filings, which may be accessed through our website at

Let me begin with the 2003 overview. Quite simply, 2003 was a year of strong
improvement for Goldfield - a year when we significantly increased revenues and
income from all of our operations.

On the numbers side, revenues from continuing operations increased more than 47
percent to nearly $33 million, while income from continuing operations grew 41
percent to half a million dollars, or 2 cents per share.

It is important to note that Goldfield's growth was driven by strong results in
both our electrical construction and real estate businesses.

Electrical Construction

During last year's shareholders meeting, I indicated there were signs of a
general turnaround in the electrical construction industry. This did not
materialize. The industry continues in a slump, with many of our competitors
reporting losses. Despite this industry environment, Southeast Power experienced
growth in both revenue and operating income. This success is even more
significant when you consider that it did not include any work related to the
northeast grid replacement efforts which we had expected to result from the
power outage last August.

Although Southeast Power has had an exceptional first quarter this year, we do
not expect the same pace to continue in the second and third quarters. As we
reported in our first quarter Form 10-Q, our backlog level declined 28 percent
from the same date a year ago. We are currently experiencing a lower demand for
electrical construction services from many of our utility customers. We believe
that this is also the case for our competitors. This general fall-off in
industry demand may likely have an adverse effect on pricing and margins. As you
know, our electrical construction work at any point involves a limited number of
projects, and this, coupled with fluctuations in demand and any unanticipated
developments on particular projects, necessarily produces uneven results.

The immediate future of our electric construction business may also be affected
by recent operational issues (some safety-related) at two of our major
customers, which together accounted for approximately 28 percent of Southeast
Power's revenues over the last three


years. In the case of one customer, these incidents resulted in termination of
an ongoing contract, the unrecovered portion of which represented about 11
percent of our electrical construction backlog at March 31, 2004. In the case of
the other customer, we do not anticipate termination of any existing contracts.
With respect to both customers, we may be temporarily limited in our ability to
bid on certain of their future projects.

At this point, we cannot gauge the precise impact of these developments, but
they may have a material adverse effect on our near-term electrical construction
results. Southeast Power has taken steps to strengthen its training and quality
control efforts to prevent reoccurrence of such situations. In view of our long
history of satisfactory professional relationships with these and our other
customers, we believe that Southeast Power will continue to perform well in the

Real Estate

Our real estate development activities were strong in 2003.  During 2003, we:-

     o    Completed and sold our second luxury waterfront condominium
          development, Riomar, near Cocoa Beach.

     o    Began construction of our third luxury waterfront condominium
          development, Cape Club, in Cape Canaveral. All units there are under
          contract for sale, and completion is expected in the second quarter of

     o    Obtained reservations for sale on approximately 90 percent of the
          units in Oak Park, the company's townhouse-style project. This 40 unit
          project is expected to commence construction in the third quarter of
          this year.

     o    Completed the preliminary planning for a multi-phase river view
          residential complex in Melbourne, called Pineapple House. If all
          phases are completed, this project would be substantially larger than
          any of our prior developments. Although Pineapple House is still in
          the permitting phase, we currently estimate that it will be completed
          in stages over the next several years.

  In short, we have continued to build on our solid reputation for planning,
  completing and selling high quality luxury condominium developments in Brevard
  County, Florida.


Along with the strong successes in our two core businesses, we continued to
develop new initiatives designed to expand our customer base and grow the
company in the future. For example, we:-

     o    Expanded the reach of Goldfield's electrical construction services by
          establishing a northern division, based in South Carolina. The
          division provides both telecommunication and electrical construction
          services beyond the company's traditional markets, and into the
          mid-Atlantic and northern region of the U.S.

     o    And we bolstered Goldfield's stock repurchase program, extending it
          through September 16, 2004 and increasing the number of shares
          purchasable to 2.5


          million, of which the company has already purchased approximately 1.3
          million shares.
