REMAINS: Mine Shaft, few old foundations of cabins
Supposedly an old spanish mine (circa 1796). Reports that a 1930 Geology class from the University of Utah tried to expand the second mine opening but the blasting they did, sealed the second mine entrance instead. If you reach the mine opening you can see where someone may be actively mining as there are pots, pans, and childrens hand drawn pictures at the Mine Shaft entrance. Submitted by: Chris Chrysler
