The Idaho Mine in City Creek Canyon was still a small operation in 1873. A shaft was being sunk,
but few details are known other than a pocket of galena had been encountered (1), and the rock was
softening as the shaft gained in depth.(2)
The mine was large enough to have numerous stockholders, some of
which paid a visit to the mine in September of 1873 and were "Very pleased" with what they saw. The shaft was down
44 feet by that time and had a well defined ledge 4 to 6 feet in width. The "crevace (of the shaft) being nearly
all in mineral". The Superintendant of the mine at this time was a Mr. G.S. Williams.(3)
There are no known images of the Idaho property.
The exact location of this mine is not yet known.
