    Well, actually the timbers all caught fire and there were a lot of timbers in the mine, since the miners had decimated the jack and red pine forests on the Shivwits Plateau 25 miles to the east. In 1955, someone threw nearly one million dollars into reworking the mine tailings, plus searching for new deposits.

      Wow, I never hear that. I know that they tried to start up the mine again in the 70’s as well. My Dad and Grandpa ran into some of the potential investors. They had gotten flown in and were wearing suites. My Dad said they looked a bit shell shocked. I’m not sure if you’ve ever been out there, but it is pretty remote.
