   The   TREASURE HOUSE RELICS PROJECT (THRP)
 
is the name of this undertaking.  I share this project here. 30 years of exploring, research, and collecting all brought together in one place.  The goal, to create the most complete, comprehensive digital archive of early hard-rock mining in Utah ever published to the web. I'm just getting started and it will take years to add it all, so check back often to see what's new.
