Rob Roy Mine

The Rob Roy Mine in City Creek Canyon was little more than a prospect when brief mention was made in an 1873 Salt Lake Daily Herald paper article. " incline shaft is being run along a rock catch a deposit that is supposed to exist..." (1) Not exactly words that inspire confidence.
Still, a month later, notice would be given that "The Rob Roy is being worked by the owners, and the showing is very encouraging."(2)
No images of this mine are known
The exact location of this mine is not yet known.
