The Summit Mine was a small property on Scott Hill, that was being worked very vigorously in
the summer of 1873. Newspaper reports tell of a new windlass being installed, new skids and heavy timbers being delivered,
and work on the mine running "smooth"
and dividends "anticipated soon".(1) As
yet, no records of dividends have been located.
Work had gone well enough that the owners decided to continue operations year-round. To that end, it was decided
to build cabins and make preparations to make themselves "...as
snug as possible" during the winter months.(2)
Ten years later, the Summit was being worked as the sister mine to the Red Bird, and had
very similar ore, but no description of the extent of the workings was listed.(3)
No images of this mine are known
The exact location of this mine is not yet known.
